2015 KIA OPTIMA Steering Problems, Complaints and Defects

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemSteering seems to get tight as if the power is going out. Steering wheel will shift from left to right and it makes for an exhausting drive. I drive 160 miles to and from work daily and this has become a very dangerous and scary drive for me. I have read numerous complaints from other consumers with the same issue. It is disheartening that nothing is being done about this as of yet. I feel as if someone will have to lose their life before the manufacturer will take this seriously. Something is definitely wrong here, when you spend so much money on a vehicle and are unable to use it because of a manufacturer flaw. Please, someone hear what we are saying before something tragic happens.
