I have a 2019 Tucson Highlander.
It drifts to the left even on good freeway surfaces. The effort to keep it straight is tiring particularly on long trips. The alignment is within spec. Can the steering angle sensor be tricked so the effort to keep it straight is reduced.
Any suggestions??


The dealer so far has not managed to achieve anything!

No you can't trick the sensor. My suggestion is you take it back under warranty to another dealer first and if all else fails get a good wheel aligner that knows their stuff reset it. Good luck.

Swap the two front tires from side to side, if problem goes away or changes direction most likely there’s a difference in tire circumference (doesn’t take much). Had same problem once on new tires and ended up matching closest circumference tires together on either front or rear, never had problem afterwards as they moved together from front to rear with each rotation.

How much 'pulling' does it do?

Cars are generally set up when balanced so they do marginally pull to the left; to avoid cars deviating into oncoming traffic should the driver not be attentive.

No idea where you are but I'd go with finding specialist like Fulcrums to measure and print out the current settings of the vehicle, that could then be compared to the " OEM Spec" If anything obvious was out then you could go from there especially if it turned out to be a value that's factory set by the design and assembly of the vehicle that could indicate something is bent or out of whack out of the factory. I'm thinking castor/camber angles. Generally the only adjustments these days are toe-in.

A specialist may also have camber bolts and or off centre bushes to correct design deficiencies and they would also know from the current settings what the vehicle is likely to be doing.

I have a 2017 Tucson, and it does the same thing, every time it goes for service I mention it, but it remains unresolved. It’s still got its original tyres on it as I’ve only done 25000kms.
