The 2019 Hyundai Accent is a fuel-efficient and fun compact economy car. The exterior is a symphony of tight, straight lines and flowing curves, making it look more expensive than it really is. Headlamps are projectors with a thin row of Daytime Running LED's making it pretty classy. The rear LED taillights look modern and attractive too. The sloping roof and the rising shoulder line add bulk to the rear doors, but that can be corrected by opting for bigger, lower-profile (205/45 R17) wheels and tires.
On the inside the seats are comfortable but not supportive. They aren't power-adjustable either, which is not so good because everyone else does have power seats. However if you're the only one who will drive this car, then how often do you want to adjust your seating positions anyway? Finding a good driving position isn't hard at all – everything is manually adjustable. The gear lever both manual and automatic are placed perfectly to reach without an effort. Two dials and a 3.5” monochrome screen form the instrument cluster. A bigger 5” touchscreen controls audio and helps you reverse. At the bottom lie two 12-Volt outlets, a USB port and an auxiliary jack. Storage cubbies are right where you would expect, and very useful too. Despite a high loading lip and narrow opening, the trunk is very usable and very large – with a 387-liter capacity which can be expanded by folding the 60-40 split rear seats. Speaking of rear seats, three can sit here comfortably for shorter journeys. Legroom is merely adequate and head room is at a premium, but thigh and lumbar support is good. It feels nice and airy inside the cabin with the large windows, light-colored materials and a sunroof.
You can have the 2019 Hyundai Accent with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine or with a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. The former produces 99 hp and 13.5 kgm (136 Nm) of torque, while the latter makes 121 hp and 15.4 kgm (156 Nm) of torque. However the 1.6 liter engine is smoother and responsive. By no means does it make this a fast car (0-100 kmph in 10.3 seconds, compared with 11.3 for the base model) but it makes city driving a breeze definitely. Fuel economy is 6.28 L/100 (15.9 kmpl) for the base 1.4 liter model and 6.41 L/100 (15.6kmpl) for the 1.6 liter engine. Transmissions are available in 6-speed manual, and a 6-speed automatic whichever best suits your driving style.
Driven sensibly, the 2019 Hyundai Accent is quiet and composed and looks like a fresh business suit. It drives well, too. The chassis (monocoque frame) is rigid and the car feels composed and predictable in the corners. The steering feedback is not much but it doesn't lack in accuracy. The suspension swallows small bumps gives the car a flat ride over bad surfaces but produces a lot of squat and dive.
Even as the Hyundai Accent never had sporting aspirations, this new 2019 model is a good car to drive. Hyundai has worked hard to improve the weight and damping of the clutch, gear lever, brakes, and steering, and the results are tremendous. There is a tightness to this Hyundai that puts it right up there with the Japanese car models. UAE prices for the 2019 Hyundai Accent start at AED 50,500. To get the bigger engine you'd have to spend AED 52,500. The top-of-the-line trim level demands AED 59,500. At these rates the Accent is cheaper than similar Japanese vehicles. This makes Hyundai Accent a very good value for money car. We recommend the 1.6-liter Accent which is better, safer, and has a known record of reliability.

Hyundai Accent Review
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.
