You will have to have the steering alignment checked .
I am thinking that you could well have the problem with the steering damper.
When you get the alignment checked and adjusted, the shop has to check the steering ball joints, tie rod end every thing that has to do with the alignment , wheel alignment should be checked every 6 to 8 months on these cars so it would be an advantage to do this now and have it checked .Steering damper is a big possibility on this car .
Need more assistance on this topic please let me know .
