Elantra_2015_Steering_Stiffness

Recommended Posts

Dears,

I'am the first owner and am driving Elantra 2015 and and I've been facing steering stiffness since from the beginning.

The steering feels very hard and it continuously pulls and drifts to the right and there is no steering center position, so I've to fight all the times to keep it on the lane. when you try to turn into a curve I've to be very forceful with turning the steering wheel which causes a heavy shoulder pain.

P.S, for first 3 years it was under Agency maintenance and i used to keep flagging this issue, they do some changes and it feels bit better for some days then the same issue will arise. once they changed the entire MDPS steering unit as well. 

In the last 6 months,  i changed all 4 tires (Hankook) , brake pads (Genuine), both side lower arm bushes (Genuine) and went to a technician who open'd up the entire steering unit & rods and he did some sort of service , wheel balance & alignment done 4 times in 2 different shops. And all this turned out to be even worse now and i started to suffer a lot with a bad heavy steering. 

can someone please advise me the right solution to get this sorted ?

For the tire and alignment issue, you can go to Future tyres with my highest recommendation.

For steering being tight, explain to them and see if it's related due to some mechanical issue, if not you need to show your steering to a mechanic who can inspect the steering pump and advise accordingly.

If steering is hard, do check the power steering fluid and top up or flush it maybe stale and moisturized

I believe,  these steering types doesn't have fluid system at all.

Talk about total stabs in the dark. The Hyundai MDPS system does not have a steering pump nor does it have any fluid. It's an ECU that receives signals from a steering sensor that hen controls a motor which turns the wheels.

Seems like you bought your self a lemon since you had the problem from new and it was never really solved. While it was in warranty you should have stood your ground to fix this issue for once and for all.

Could be anything from the ecu needing a recalibration, bad steering sensor to a wonky motor. Find yourself a Hyundai specialist who knows this system well and have him look at it.

.As you can see majority of the people haven't even heard of this system and giving you all sort of bum advice about steering fluids and pumps.

First thing would be to get someone with a Hyundai specific diagnostic tool, none of that standard OBD crap and see what errors the system is giving you and then check the readings to see of everything is in spec.

If you know more than others, you have no right to call it a bum advice, even if you have all 5 stars. Imbecile.

I agree with @elvis. Your advise might be great and you are more aware than others, but please refrain from putting others opinions down.
