Complaint - Steering

I CAN BE DRIVING IN A STRAIGHT LINE AND AS YOU NEED TO CORRECT DRIVING LINE OF CAR THE STEERING WHEEL STICKS AS IF YOU ACTUALLY FEEL IT TRY TO HOLD YOU FROM CORRECTING. IT IS ONLY FOR A SPLIT SECOND BUT THIS IS CONSTANTLY GOING ON AS YOU DRIVE DOWN THE HIGHWAY AT SPEEDS OVER 60MPH. IT SEEMS YOU HAVE TO CONSTANTLY CORRECT LINE OF CAR MUCH MORE THAN USUAL AS IS WANTS TO DRIFT LEFT OR RIGHT. WITH THE CONSTANT CORRECTION AND STICKING (OR HANGING FEELING) IN THE STEERING WHEEL IT IS VERY AGGRAVATING AND VERY STRESSFUL ON A TRIP. I AM AFRAID THIS STICKING OF THE WHEEL MAY ALL OF A SUDDEN NOT RELEASE AND A WRECK IS LIKELY. IT ONLY HAPPENS AT SPEEDS ABOVE 60 MPH. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN AT ALL WITH AROUND TOWN DRIVING OR ON SHORT TRIPS BELOW 60 MPH. ONE HYUNDAI DEALER SERVICE REP SAID THIS IS NORMAL FOR ELECTRIC POWER STEERING. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING 49 YEARS AND THIS IS THE FIRST CAR I HAVE DROVE WITH THIS PROBLEM. I HAVE TALKED TO OWNERS OF OTHER CAR MANUFACTURERS WITH ELECTRIC STEERING NOT HAVING STEERING COMPLAINTS. I PURCHASED THIS CAR USED IN LATE 2014 AND HAVE PUT LESS THAN 10,000 MILES ON IT. IT NOW HAS 28,000 MILES. PUT NEW TIRES ON IT ABOUT 5,000 MILES AGO. I CONSTANTLY CHECK AIR PRESSURE AND THE FRONT END IS IN LINE. THIS STEERING PROBLEM IS A SAFETY CONCERN HYUNDAI SHOULD BE FORCED TO CORRECT BEFORE PEOPLE HAVE SERIOUS WRECKS. I BELIEVE THIS IS AN ENGINEERING DESIGN FLAW OF EITHER THE COMPUTER CONTROL, THE ELECTRICS CONTROLLING THE RACK AND PINION STEERING, OR THE RACK AND PINION STEERING ITSELF. I AM AMAZED THAT PROPER QUALITY CONTROL TESTING DIDN'T CATCH THIS PROBLEM BEFORE IT WENT INTO PRODUCTION. IT IS APPARENT THIS IS A BROAD PROBLEM BECAUSE OF THE HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS POSTED ABOUT THESE SAME STEERING PROBLEMS ON MANY WEB SITES.
