 Description of the problemI am the owner of a 2012 sonata limited turbo. I have been extremely loyal to the hyundai sonata brand, this being my fourth sonata. I purchased 2 of them used (both 2006's) and the other two brand new (2009 & 2012). Until this most recent new vehicle, i have not had a single problem with any of the three others. They are pretty amazing cars, if you ask me. They are a world away from hyundai? S first imports of the excel in 1986. Vin number is[xxx]. Having driven the car a short time, it seemed to me that the car wandered excessively and always felt on the parkway that you were driving on the crest of the road. At 65 mph and above, my impression is that this car is all over the road. I wrote to hyundai on february 15th, 2012 when the car had 475 miles on it. I was given case number [xxx]. L thought it was alignment problem because of the wandering condition. When picking it up, i asked about what the problem was. They said that it was there was an air pressure problem. No alignment was done. On a winding road, it is all over the road. I wrote again to hyundai on july 19st. I was given case number [xxx]. They said that they would be contacting the service manager. I have yet to hear back from hyundai. I'd like a factory rep or zone manager to drive this car and then examine it to determine what needs to be done to this car to either fix it, or replace it. I? D also like to drive an identical 2012 turbo to see if it is perhaps, just my car that is problematic. This car was brought in three different times to two different dealerships. Both say there is nothing wrong with the car, however, independant shops and other people driving this car cornfirm that there is a problem. This car is unsafe to drive on the highways. If you were to lose concentration for even a moment, you would be involved in an accident.
