Just had same issue with steering column. Car is 14 months with under 17K for miles. Steering started to lock ip. Dealer is replacing without any pushback. Somewhat disappointed with vehicle overall due to a variety of build quality issues. And now the letter from Hyundai about overstated MPG. May be rethinking Hyundai's quick rise to success. Have owned many other Elantras before this one. By far this is the best looking but with these issues, a very loud interior when on highway far, excessive wear on performance tires.....

I had an Elantra 2012. I purchased it new and 9 months later my steering locked hard while I was driving on the highway. I was unable to make a turn and therefore ended up hitting a transport truck coming the opposite direction. I was lucky to live through it. I am looking to find someone to do a class action lawsuit. Is there anyone out there that has steering issues with their Hyundai??? This is a serious issue that needs to get out there. People need to be aware of the steering issues before someone gets killed!

I also have this problem with my 2009 Elantra Power Steering cutting out. (ESC-OFF and EPS Warning lights come on). Luckily I haven't been in an accident yet. My dealer applied a software upgrade today to see if that fixes the problem but I'm worried about driving the car as it could happen again any time. If it happens again thy said they would need to replace the entire steering column at a cost of $3000 !! To that I say BULL$%!+ !!! We need Hyundai to do a safety recall on this. I too will be looking into what regulatory body needs to get involved here.

I have purchased a new 2013 Elantra and Im having a steering problem that cant be fixed. My car is pulling to the right and I have taken it to the dealership 3 times and they cant fix it. I have only had the car for 3 mouths. This is a manger problem and everyone who have experienced this issue should spread the word to not purchase this car. Please don't purchase this car; BUYER BEWARE....
