Complaint - Steering

THIS HAS BEEN AN ISSUE FROM DAY ONE SINCE I PURCHASED THE CAR USED IN JANUARY 2018. FIRST DRIVE TO WORK. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE STEERING STICKS AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS 50-75 MPH. AS ONE DRIVES DOWN THE ROAD, YOU ARE ALWAYS MAKING LITTLE ADJUSTMENTS TO KEEP THE CAR GOING STRAIGHT OR WHILE IN A LONG SWEEPING BEND OR TURN. MY CAR WILL CATCH OR STICK IN THE STRAIGHT UP STEERING POSITION OR WHEN MAKING LONG SWEEPING TURNS. INSTEAD OF THE STEERING WHEEL MOVING SMOOTHLY WHILE MAKE THESE ADJUSTMENTS, THE STEERING WILL STICK AND CAUSE YOU TO OVER STEER. MAKES YOU HAVE TO USE FORCE TO GET THE WHEEL TO MOVE OUT OF ITS STUCK POSITION. IT TENDS TO WEAR YOU OUT BECAUSE YOU'RE CONSTANTLY FIGHTING WITH THE STEERING. I DEAL WITH THIS DAILY AS MY COMMUTE IS 90 MILES A DAY TO WORK ON THE HIGHWAY. I HAVE READ NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ON OTHER SITES AS WELL. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER, AND THEY HAVE ADJUSTED THE STEERING MODE. THE CAR WORKS FINE AT CITY SPEEDS(0-50MPH) BUT TENDS TO REALLY STIFFIN AND GETS "STICKY" AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. I FEEL THIS IS REALLY GOING TO CAUSE ACCIDENTS. BEING THE CAR JERKS TO THE SIDE WHEN ADJUSTING. THIS REALLY NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED, AS IT IS A SAFETY CONCERN FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS.
