    I had this issue happen to me one day around 19,500 miles on my '14 SX Turbo. I was driving back from visiting family for the holidays, and it lasted for about 7 hours at highway speeds (50-80mph) in early January (in Wisconsin, so it was cold out), and kept happening even after turning off the car when fueling up. I thought it might have been because the car was loaded up with a lot of luggage in the trunk and back seat, because I haven't had it happen again since returning home. It could be weather related, but I've been out in colder weather and haven't had it happen again. I haven't loaded up the car again since then either though, so I have not yet tested my heavy load theory.

    Nonetheless, thank you Mcraggleton for the TSB #. I'll definitely keep it handy for my next visit to the dealership.

    Has anyone had this latest TSB performed with good results? I have this issue, and would like to go to the dealer with proper info to have the issue addressed.

    I realize the thread is old, but I wanted to chime in. I had the sticking steering problem as well. I finally was able to get the Kia dealership to replace the MBPS and supposedly the steering assembly. This is according to the notes on the sheet I was given. Have a good one!
