One of the most basic things you expect your new Hyundai Elantra to do is drive straight down the road, but there are numerous owners who complain that the car not only doesn’t drive straight, but the steering wheel can lock up and they can’t turn at all.
Indeed, the worst problem with the 2015 and 2016 Hyundai Elantra cars is by far issues involving the steering wheel. Many owners have complained that the steering wheel will suddenly lock up and drivers are unable to turn. One motorist was unable to avoid hitting a railing and crashed into it causing significant damage to the rear passenger door and tail lights. Fortunately no one was hurt, but no doubt this was a traumatic event and this car needed to be fixed.
Another driver had the steering wheel get stuck in the turn position and they were unable to straighten it, but fortunately there were no injuries involved.
There is other problems with the steering in the Hyundai Elantra and it has to do with drifting into other lanes or changing lanes with the slightest movement of the steering wheel. Several drivers have complained about this problem of the car wandering back and forth as they try to maintain it on a straight pathway on the freeway. The problem is likened to trying to steer the car on black ice.
Other Elantra owners have complained that the steering wheel in their car was not centered and was off to one side.
The dealerships do not seem to be able to fix this problem, but it’s not clear whether this was affecting more than a few lemons or if it was more widespread.
