 Description of the problemSteering makes clicking sounds, when moved from a center position, either left or right. Steering seems to 'stick' i. E. Does not move smoothly. The culprit is a "steering coupling" made out of plastic that couples the steering motor to the steering column. Knowing this is a defect, hyundai quietly extended the warranty on its replacement to 100,000 miles. However they did not send out a notification letter to vehicle owners. Myself and many other hyundai vehicle owners are very concerned that this would lead to loosing control of the vehicle while driving, leading to accidents and loss of life. This is clearly a defective design, and incorrect choice of coupling material, which is bound to get worn off often, since it is a plastic part sitting between two metallic parts moving against each other. This should be a defect that should be fixed regardless of mileage of the vehicle. Instead nhtsa has apparently allowed the company to just extend the warranty on fixing this; so it doesn't need to bear the expenses as vehicles go beyond 100,000 miles. It takes $400-$500 to fix mainly due to labor expenses, to replace a $5 part which is hard to reach. Nhtsa has to do a better job at protecting the consumers against issues which are a result of defective design which can lead to accidents and loss of life. Https://autoservice. Hyundaiusa.
