Complaint - Steering

STEERING WHEEL CLICKING, LOTS OF PLAY IN WHEEL HAPPENS WHEN STATIONARY, DRIVING, AND MUCH WORSE WITH TURNING. HYUNDAI MULTI POINT INSPECTION COMPLETED ON 12/31/15, (NOTE: FASTEST SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE, EVER: 2 HOURS!) PROBLEM IDENTIFIED AS A BUSHING AND NOT A SAFETY ISSUE. REPAIR NOT PERFORMED. CAN SCHEDULE FOR THE FUTURE. TECHNICIAN AWARE THAT I WAS TAKING A LONG TRIP TO GEORGIA (440 MILES). IN GA THE DEALERSHIP IDENTIFIED A DEFECTIVE WORN STEERING COUPLING PART 56315-2K000-FFF. ALSO NOTED ONLY 12877 MILES ON THE CAR AND "THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE THAT WOULD CAUSE YOU TO LOOSE ABILITY TO STEER CAR". LOOKED UP ISSUE ON INTERNET, MANY BLOGS ON THIS ISSUE FROM 2011 TO 2013, COMPLAINT THAT HYUNDAI WILL NOT ISSUE A RECALL. MECHANICS STATE, THIS IS A "KNOWN DEFECT" IN THE SONATAS, BUT NO RECALL HAS BEEN MADE.
