I posted this in the regular YF forum but thought I'd cross-post here, too.

I'm thinking of having the electronic steering settings changed when I visit my dealer for my next oil change (mine came with a lifetime package). Several other people on the forum have had their settings changed to reduce the amount of assist and have it feel more like a traditional hydraulic assist. After reading through this thread, it looks we have four options:

GLS
Hard
Soft
Sport

For those that have toyed around with this, does Hard or Sport have the least amount of assist? Has anyone been able to A/B these?

I've got the same car as you do! Interesting question as I was wondering the same.

Wonder what the difference between the hard and sport would be!

The modes are soft, normal for GLS and Limited and SE has soft and hard.

I have a SE 2.0T, I had my EPS mode changed from SE Soft to SE Hard. This is a dealer software change only. When I was checking in the Service Desk the guy said I probably may not feel a big difference but he was he wrong. The EPS almost has 'feel', I like the slight harder parking lot effort (do not worry if you are changing, there is more than enough steering assist) and I really like the highway solid feel and no more wandering.

Originally had my car set to SE Soft (Normal I think is what is listed in GDS system) and it did wander like others have posted here. Also had a severe left pull issue even after having the camber bolt recall done 3 years ago.

Now have it on SE Hard (Sport in GDS) and it steers a lot better. Although it seems to wander just as much if not more now. However, I did get new tires a while back and I would attribute the wandering to them more than the steering setting.

Dealer should be able to hook you up no charge but its not something covered by warranty...FYI

More power to ya. It's your car and you should enjoy the setting of preference. When I complained about pulling to the left the traveling service boy changed mine to the harsh setting w/o telling me. Then refused to change it back to the original "soft" LTD setting. YMMV

I've changed the setting from low to high today at the nearest dealdership. they charged me $65 because my car was out of new vehicle warranty.

The change is done as a one-time courtesy and depends on the dealer. Its not a warranty service, per se, unless the rack itself required some repair.

And yea, they usually won't change it back unless you pay for it.

I argued that it was a 10 min simple free-of-charge job, but the dealership I visited insisted that my car was out of new vehicle warranty. I did not want to waste my time so I just paid. I feel like the change is worth the price though.

My 2019 Santa Fe SE used to give my steering wheel a little nudge whenever I got too close to the white line. I messed with the settings and selected "Factory Settings". Now no longer gives me beeps or nudges. How can I get that back?

I was in the 2019 Santa Fe forum. But when I searched for my question, it took me somewhere different to post my question. Not my fault.

This isn't the same problem that you have anyway!? You're looking for "steering feedback".
