Complaint - Steering

DRIVING MY NEW 2013 HYUNDAI SONATA 2.0T, I KNOW THERE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS) ON THE CAR. MY CAR JUST KEEPS WANDERING WHEN DRIVING OVER 45 MPH ON FREEWAY. IT WILL KEEP WANDERING TO THE LEFT AND TO THE RIGHT. IT REQUIRES CONSTANT CORRECTION TO KEEP MY CAR IN THE LANE AND THE STEERING WHEEL IS EXTREMELY SENSITIVE. WHEN THE CAR WANDERS TO THE LEFT, I WOULD TRY TO CORRECT IT BACK TO CENTER, BUT IT WON'T STAY STRAIGHT AND IT WANDERS TO THE RIGHT AFTER CORRECTION. DRIVING IN A STRAIGHT LINE IS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE. IT OFTEN GOES INTO THE OTHER LANE NEXT TO ME AND I HAVE ALMOST HIT THE CAR NEXT TO ME. IT IS SCARY AND VERY DANGEROUS. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER 3 TIMES AND THEY TELL ME THERE IS A SOFTWARE GLITCH, THEY KEEP SAYING IT IS FIXED BUT IT IS NOT. THEY HAVE PERFORMED SEVERAL ALIGNMENTS AND IT IS NOT THE ISSUE. IT IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE 2013 HYUNDAI SONATA'S STEERING THAT IS CONTROLLED BY THE CAR'S COMPUTER. PLEASE REQUEST HYUNDAI TO RECALL THE EPS SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE BEFORE MANY PEOPLE GET HURT FROM THIS. THANK YOU.
