Tucson 4-cyl

When entering an attended automatic car wash, I placed the car in neutral, foot off the brake, as instructed by attendant. The car continued to move forward, slowly and tapped the car in front. They stopped the car wash and said the car had been in gear. However, it was in neutral. When they restarted the car wash, my car continued to creep forward, with my having to tap the brake repeatedly to maintain a safe distance from vehicle in front. Later that day I checked this on a level surface in a parking lot. When the car was placed in neutral with the engine running, and foot off the brake, it would creep forward at a slow walk speed. When it was in neutral with the engine turned off, and foot off brake, the car would not move. It appears that the transmission is engaging to some degree even when in neutral. This constitutes a hazard since the car may move in situation like a car wash or other circumstance where it is placed in neutral with brake off and engine running. On the day after this incident, I recorded a video documenting this issue.

Car has been in shop about 8 time for pulling to right 1st they said it was bad tires switched out but still continued to pull went it shop again said it was the tires so switched out again took another dealer said that it was the crowning in road I drove other Tucson's and they did not pull then they said it was because of all the mileage that was on my car next they said it was pulling bc of electronic steering id really like to know what is wrong with the car. I have a regional person coming down on the 28th of Aug to look into car pulling to right. Also have took my car to firestones and they say that there is something definitely wrong with the tow and alignment yet the dealer insists that is not the problem.
