Complaint - Steering

LIKE MANY OTHER COMPLAINTS I'VE READ RECENTLY, I AM ALSO HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE 2013 HYUNDAI SONATA STEERING. WHEN DRIVING OVER 60 MPH THE STEERING DOESN'T CENTER, INSTEAD THE CAR WANDERS TO THE LEFT, THERE IS A BLANK SPACE IN THE STEERING, AND WHEN YOU GO TO TURN RIGHT IT DOESN'T CATCH RIGHT AWAY, THEN OVER-CORRECTS, WHICH THEN CAUSES YOU TO TURN THE STEERING WHEEL THE OTHER DIRECTION, SO IT'S A CONSTANT, EXHAUSTING BATTLE WHILE DRIVING. MY FOREARMS GET TIRED. IT WAS BARELY NOTICEABLE WHEN I FIRST PURCHASED THE CAR USED WITH LOW MILEAGE. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS MY IMAGINATION, BUT NOW IT'S WORSE AND TIRING. CURRENT MILEAGE 25,000. I TOOK IT IN TO MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP (WHO IS GREAT) AND THEY SAID EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN READING PREVIOUSLY, THAT IT'S THE ELECTRONIC STEERING SYSTEM INSTEAD OF HYDRAULIC, THAT THERE ISN'T MUCH THEY CAN DO, AND TO GET USED TO IT. THEY DID TRY, AND REPROGRAMMED THE CAR TO THE SPORT STEERING MODE, WHICH DOES HELP THE OVERALL HANDLING OF THE CAR, WHICH I APPRECIATED, BUT THE PROBLEM IS STILL THERE. THEY SAID THERE IS NO IMMINENT DANGER, WHICH I WAS RELIEVED TO HEAR, BUT DRIVING LONG DISTANCES DOES NOT EXCITE ME ANY LONGER. I'M AFRAID THIS COULD BE DAMAGING FOR HYUNDAI AS THE COMPLAINTS ARE STARTING TO STACK UP. IT SOUNDS LIKE A RECALL FOR THE STEERING COUPLER NEEDS TO HAPPEN, BUT I HOPE BY REGISTERING MY COMPLAINT, SOMETHING MAY GET DONE ABOUT IT. IF ANYONE KNOWS A DIRECTION TO GO WITH THIS PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THEY DID NOT OFFER TO REPLACE THE STEERING COUPLER. EACH DAY THAT I DRIVE IT IT SEEMS TO BE MORE DIFFICULT TO CONTROL THE CAR FROM SIDE TO SIDE INCREASING RISK OF SIDESWIPING OTHER CARS OR OBSTACLES.
