I've read a number of complaints in the reviews about the sonata's electrically assisted power steering. Some people feel it's too loose on highways speeds where the car will bear to the left and not keep straight.

There was also a very dramatic post on edmunds about a woman who said she and her family almost got killed and hit an oncoming car when her power steering failed while driving.

If the software for the power steering is buggy, it needs to be fixed ASAP as it can be a life threatening problem.

In any event, it's good to know for all sonata drivers that this may be an issue and if it happens not to be completely unprepared. I'm also very interested in your handling of the vehicle after your power steering failed.

The only thing that gave me pause when buying the 2011 sonata is we are basically the guinea pigs. The car is brand new and built from the bottom up, new design, new engine, new everything. There's so much new in this car that there were bound to be bugs. But having your power steering fail isn't like having bluetooth or radio problems. This can be very serious.
