The contact owns a 2016 Hyundai Elantra. While driving at any speed, the steering wheel turned to the left and right independently without warning. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer where it was diagnosed and an alignment was performed. The failure recurred and the dealer performed another alignment. The failure recurred and was not remedied. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failures. The VIN was invalid. The approximate failure mileage was 60.

The sport steering is over sensitive which is a hazard. The slightest turn of the steering wheel causes the vehicle to turn abruptly. I have measured that a quick lane change could take place by moving the steering wheel by 1/4 of an inch in either direction. The slightest movement could cause an accident and bodily injury at highway speeds.
