Complaint - Steering

THE STEERING COLUMN SEEMS TO NOT HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED CORRECTLY. THE CAR IS NOT ABLE TO STAY IN A STRAIGHT LINE AND I HAVE TO BE CONSTANTLY CORRECTING THE VEHICLE FROM EITHER DRIFTING LEFT OR RIGHT. I TOOK IT IN TO AN AUTO SHOP TO CHECK ALIGNMENT AND THAT WAS NOT THE ISSUE. THE CAR DRIVES LIKE IT HAS NO CENTER FOR THE STEERING COLUMN, NOT BALANCED AND JUST FREE TO TURN LEFT OR RIGHT AT RANDOM. THERE SEEMS TO BE A GAP IN THE STEERING OR WHAT I CALL A PLAY (MEANING A SPACE OR GAP FOR WHEN YOU TURN AND THE STEERING DOES NOT RESPOND, IT IS THAT GAP THAT KEEPS THE STEERING FROM IMMEDIATE RESPONSE AND CAUSING THE STEERING TO DRIFT TO THAT END POINT, LIKE A RUNNER IN A STARTING BLOCK THAT IS NOT ANCHORED AND SLIDES AWAY OR LIKE A SCALE THAT IS NOT ADJUSTED TO ZERO STARTING POINT. I MUST SAY I BOUGHT THE CAR THINKING I WAS JUST NOT USED TO THAT TYPE OF STEERING AND THEN THOUGHT IT WAS AN ALIGNMENT PROBLEM BUT IT HAS BECOME MORE EVIDENT THERE IS SOMETHING INNS THE STEERING COLUMN.
