I wonder if they replaced the tires on your car at the port of entry (like they did on ours) and didn't align it properly.

Because they've experienced flat spots on some tires due to how long it takes to ship them. So they decided to replace them on cars that have that issue. That was back in August and September (for me). Not sure if it's still an issue.

Thanks ....
Again more ammunition ...

But I've had tires form flat spots before ....And the thing is ...
They Flump ....like in the old days
With Nylon Tires ..( Remember Those Guys ....In the winter until they warmed up ...
Flumpa, Flumpa, Flumpa ....?

This is like 1... The steering wheel isn't centered on the money ...
Theres a tug you fight with your left hand ...if you let it go ...it starts to drift to the right ....
Classic Alignment Issue ...
How the drive by wire steering plays into this , I'm not really sure ...
But I know they still center the steering wheel ...

I've also had an incident once where simply switching the tires around fixed the problem ....This might would fit with the flat spot theory ...???

We shall see .... I'll report back ..!

Flat spots would nothing to do with pulling you would be getting a vibration and flat spots should go away after a few days and i think an alignment should fix the problem and steering wheel should be spot on.

Late to the thread but recommend all test drive "their" car before they sign purchase/lease paperwork. Agree with others despite not being mechanically inclined, pulling to one side sounds like alignment... Tires would be swapped if punctured or flat spots. I am sure they will get you in order. Also I would suspect its the dealers responsibility to make sure a car after it gets to the dealer is ready to be released to the customer. I am sure others know way more on that topic.

Someone might have a better link but here is one on pull below:

Yours probably is pulling to the right as you state....I relate this only because I thought mine was doing the same...pulling to the right.....I was using the driving assist for the first time, with the lane keeping on...it felt like I was having to fight the steering...it took me a few miles to realize that I was fighting the lane keeping....when I used a light touch on the wheel, the car did what it is engineered to do, and stayed in the lane...I assume you were smarter than me about what was happening...I'm sure Hyundai will make it right...good luck...

Well the first thing I always do is check the pressures and they're all spot on ....
I turned off all the toys and it still pulls right..
What's interesting it'll a light pull in Comfort ....Fwd .....Increases a bit in Smart ... 30% to the rear ...
Most pull when the Lock is engaged 50% to rear ....
So the Thrust angle is off
Rare Alignment
Bottom line ....
It needs a 4 wheel thrust alignment which is pretty much the standard for any vehicle any more ....
And theres no way I'm paying for it at under 100 miles on the car!
