Hyundai Sonata 2011 - When baring left - the car wants to pull right - if you let go of the wheel - it will almost snap out of your hand. Brought it back twice - tire rotation and new struts. When you are driving straight - the car is perfectly fine
Sensors were checked. Alignment, New struts

Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X will see if I can assist you.
Has the vehicle been in any known accidents , hit any curbs or any type of obvious damage to the rims or hub caps ?
Did the alignment shop provide you with a print out of the specifications that were preformed or did they just adjust the tow on the vehicle. Were caster and camber measured and recorded. ? Were the tires all checked for being the same size and pressure? Do you have any abs warning lights on in your dash ? Sorry so many questions, need to know to get you going down the correct path.
Thanks will be waiting for your response ,
No accidents - have owned since new. No ABS light. No spec for vehicle. Don't know if caster and camber were recorded.
Great thanks for the information. From the information that you have provided me I would recommend that you take the vehicle to another alignment shop that has the ability to do a 4 wheel alignment that includes caster, camber and (sai ) steering axis inclination and tow settings for the front and rear wheels and request the alignment specifications that the vehicle is set to. Normally the actual alignment specifications that are provided to the technician have the vehicles specifications and what they should be set to.
Just from problems I have had in the past it sounds as if this could be a power steering issue or one of the steering components are way out of specifications.
Let me know.

Thanks so much! Your answer certainly makes the most logic. One last thing - if I may. Prior to this problem I had my tires rotated (around 8,200). Then this started to happen, although I can't pinpoint exactly how much after maybe a month -
Thanks for accepting my answer and the bonus. Your tire question though , I would doubt that that is the issue. should the problem persist, have the tires/rims switches l/f to r/f r/f to l/f , see if the problem follows the tires/...
Best of luck with it.
