Complaint - Steering

WE PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE NEW FOR MY WIFE. I DROVE THE CAR HOME FROM MARYLAND WHERE WE BOUGHT IT. I WAS HAVING DIFFICULTY MAINTAINING MY LANE ON THE WAY HOME. I THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO HAVE MANUAL STEERING ON ANOTHER CAR AND AN SUV AS A SECOND VEHICLE. MY WIFE DROVE THE CAR TO MY HOME IN HAMPTON AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEM MAINTAINING HER LANE. I DROVE IT BACK TO WOODBRIDGE SINCE SHE WAS SCARED OF THE CAR AFTER THE STEERING ISSUE. I CONTINUED TO OVERSTEER THE CAR AND HAVE PROBLEMS JUST MAINTAINING A STRAIGHT TRACK. THE VEHICLE REQUIRED CONSTANT MODIFICATIONS TO THE STEERING WHEEL TO STAY IN THE LANE. THE PRESSURE REQUIRED TO MOVE THE STEERING ALSO SEEMED EXCESSIVE. I TOOK THE VEHICLE AFTER COMPLAINING TO CORPORATE HYUNDAI. THEY SET AN APPOINTMENT FOR ME TO GET THE CAR STEERING REPROGRAMMED. SINCE REPROGRAMMING THE VEHICLE IT STEERED A LOT BETTER. THE PROBLEM NOW SEEMS TO BE NOW THAT AT MEDIUM TO HIGH SPEEDS THE VEHICLE RESPONDS RAPIDLY TO STEERING INPUT AND IN EVASIVE MANEUVERS SEEMS UNCONTROLLABLE AS IT OVERSTEERS RAPIDLY. I REALLY FEEL A RECALL NEEDS TO BE DONE ON THESE CARS AND WONDER HOW MANY RUNNING OFF THE ROAD ACCIDENTS HAVE OCCURRED DUE TO THIS VERY HORRIBLE STEERING DESIGN. THE REST OF THE CAR IS GOOD EXCEPT FOR THE IGNITION BEING ABLE TO BE TURNED OFF ACCIDENTALLY WHILE THE CAR IS IN MOTION. I FILED A COMPLAINT ALSO ABOUT THAT BEFORE THIS COMPLAINT.
