Complaint - Steering

WHEN THE 2013 HYUNDAI SONATA GLS IS DRIVEN OVER 60MPH ON THE HIGHWAY THE CAR WANDERS LEFT AND RIGHT REQUIRING CONSTANT STEERING CORRECTION. THE STEERING DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE A CENTER. HAD THE DEALER CHANGE THE STEERING MODE SETTING FROM "SOFT" TO "SPORT" MODE WHICH I WAS CHARGED $66.00. THE CHANGE MADE NO DIFFERENCE. THE DEALER STATED THAT IS THE WAY ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING (EPS) IS AND I JUST HAVE TO GET USED TO IT. THE ISSUE IS DANGEROUS AND FATIGUING TO CONSTANTLY CORRECT THE STEERING. I LOOKED DOWN TO CHANGE THE RADIO STATION AND MY CAR DRIFTED INTO THE OTHER LANE. FROM MY RESEARCH ON THIS ISSUE IT APPEARS HYUNDAI AND THE DEALERSHIPS ARE AWARE OF THE ISSUE BUT WILL NOT ADDRESS A FIX. THE DEALER STATED THAT ABOUT 2% OF THE 700,000 2013 SONATAS MANUFACTURED HAVE THE ISSUE. IF THAT IS ACCURATE THAT WOULD BE ABOUT 14,000 CARS WITH THE ISSUE. THAT IS NOT INCLUDING THE OWNERS WHO HAVE NOT MADE A COMPLIANT. I THINK THERE IS A LOT MORE CARS WITH THE ISSUE. I HAVE FOLLOWED SONATAS DOWN THE HIGHWAY AND OBSERVED THE CAR WANDERING LEFT AND RIGHT WELL KNOWING THE DRIVER IS UNDER STRESS HAVING TO CONSTANTLY CORRECT THE STEERING. HYUNDAI NEEDS TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE WITH A FIX BEFORE SOMEONE GETS KILLED IF THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED ALREADY. HELP!!!
