Electronic power steering issue. It is impossible to track vehicle straight at speeds over 30 mph. When driving on the highway the vehicle will drift to the left or right. The only way to maintain a straight line is to constantly make corrections while driving. In europe were this vehicle is also sold Kia has issued a campaign to fix the problem. I have been to the dealership several times and Kia usa is not taking ownership of this defect. There are several posts on the web of owners reporting the same problem. Kia will not fess up to this defect unless it is force by a government Agency. It is very unsafe to operate a vehicle that constantly drifts at highways speeds.
