    And to anyone looking at a Hyundai - drive these cars before accepting delivery as this company seems to have an issue with the steering/suspension on our roads.

    We might just be unlucky but 2 out 2 is starting to to really annoy me.

    As an update I'm making some enquiries about some adjustable camber bolts for this car. I can't find any mention of off-the-shelf bolts for this car in Australia but they are available for the American Santa Fe. It is an American car after all so should be something out there (designed in the US branch of Hyundai, left hand drive cars made in Korea, right hand drive by Kia in the US). I'm hoping some positive camber on the driver's side will help.

    So I've come to the decision to get some more off-road oriented wheels/tyres for this car. I'm also hoping this might go someway to correcting the camber sensitivity of the car.

    It currently has 255/55r19 wheels/road tyres. Thinking of buying a set of IX35 wheels and putting on either 235/65r17 or 225/65r17 Pirelli Scorpion ATRs? The IX35 wheels are only 6.5 inch versus the current 8 inch factory wheels although the base model Santa Fe uses 17x7 inch wheels. I've read you can go to 235 on the 6.5 inch wheels but better to stick to 225?

    Any thoughts from anyone?
