We just purchased a 2022 SEL Convience Saturday and noticed while driving today around a decent turn that the steering wheel almost takes control and pulls the vehicle even further to the left. The lane assist is not engaged and neither is the AWD. The car is not out of alignment and isn't pulling to the left any other time except when going around a curve. Is there anything else I'm missing that could cause this, or do we need to head back to the dealership already?

Thanks for your help!!

Lane assist kicking in, would be my guess (It does seem to engage even when you don't have the button on the steering wheel pushed- Safety minded feature in either case). Our Tucson does it from time to time and it is barely perceivable, luckily. Our last car was a 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback and it would 'jerk' the steering wheel and slam on the brakes for no apparent reason at various times. This Tucson is much 'nicer' and 'safer' than the Civic is / was.

I am also a very new 2022 hybrid SEL owner, and noticed the same thing on a curve on an interstate; a bit unnerving. It was a bend in the road, and I thought maybe "truck ruts" were causing my car to be pushed (pulled?) to the left. I really was unnerved when it happened. So, not the truck ruts?

I would strongly believe this is the LFA or LKA stepping in. To the left of the EV symbol, is that green or white? Try holding the corresponding button on your steering wheel for 2 seconds to disable. Is there a steering wheel next to it? Tap that same button to disable it.

There's a lot of tech in this car and I find in situations outside of freeway driving it can be a little aggressive at pulling out of your lane when it sees something. Going around corners on freeway ramps it also tries to "correct" me when I cut the corners like an indy car.

Thanks for your input; much appreciated. It agrees with some given me by owners of other cars, and their experiences. I did disable LKA, and so far, at least in my head(!), I think it has solved my problem. I'm not as anxious that it might happen, anyway! I'm making a 10+ year jump in technology in this upgrade from my 2011 Chevy Equinox....which I loved, by the way. Three weeks with my new Tucson, I still feel like I'm driving someone else's car, but am very happy with it. I'm pretty sure I will grow to love it, as I did my Equinox. Thanks again.

Hah, I understand that feeling. I came from a base model manual transmission Honda...the Tucson still feels like a space ship after a month of ownership but we're becoming fast friends. It's a little harder for me to build trust in a car that thinks faster than I can! haha

phalkon30 (post#4) had the answer, I bet. I'd love to hear a good explanation of the difference between lane keeping assist and lane following assist. I've been through all the descriptions in the manual on the 2 systems, but lane following seems to be redundant to lane keeping. It is a bit confusing, especially if you have to disable both and have to remember to do the long press of the steering wheel switch to get the 2nd to turn off.

Concerning lane following assist... If there's snow on the road, and the car in front of you drives out across a field by mistake, does the lane following assist send you out there with him? Inquiring minds want to know.

Honestly I wonder the same thing with LKA and LFA, the manual isn't great and it feels like they overlap. I find it funny you can disable LKA while in full LFA mode.


From reading around some Kia forums, here's what I can tell:
LKA will nudge and annoy you back into a lane, it's reactive. It will "keep" you from deviating from the lane too much, like a goalie (keeper in soccer) keeping a ball out at all costs
LFA will proactively monitor the lane markers and cars in front to keep you centered when cruise is on and you're between 40mph and 95mph. It will "follow" the lane without letting you get out of bounds

I'd rather have lane keep assist off by default when I start the car, and turn on LFA when I want to. I might play with the settings to see if that's possible, LKA is just annoying but LFA is useful to me

Ok, here’s my $0.02 (nothing official, just my own interpretation having driven my Canadian HEV Ultimate for almost 6K kms) …

LKA (Lane Keep Assist) is there to “keep” you in your lane and activates (when the car thinks you’re going to veer out of your lane) by trying to stop you from exiting your lane. Green roadway lane icon visible. (This is configurable via setup to actively assist or just warn via beeping.)

LFA (Lane Follow Assist) is there to watch where the lane is, both where you are and up ahead, to try to effect shallow steering actions to “follow” the centre of the lane, even if the road curves. Green steering wheel icon visible.

The button on the right side of the steering wheel showing these same icons, when pressed briefly will turn off LFA and the green steering wheel icon (becomes white, meaning available but deactivated), whereas a long press of that same button will turn off LKA and the green roadway lane icon.

^ Hey 222cson, great info/interpretation regarding LKA & LFA. I'd like to add just a little more detail here though for added clarity...
LKA (Lane Keeping Assist), when enabled, will only activate/operate when the vehicle speed reaches approx. 60 km/h || 40 mph. If the vehicle is re-started LKA will maintain the last setting (i.e. if LKA was in "Enabled" mode on the previous drive, it will remain enabled on a re-start of the vehicle).
LFA (Lane Following Assist) operates similar to LKA, except that when LFA is activated it will operate at all speeds, including speeds less than 60 km/h || 40 mph. LFA assists the driver's steering to help center the vehicle in the lane. LFA does not remain enabled when the vehicle is re-started - it must be enabled/activated on each new drive cycle. I've gotten in the habit of enabling LFA on each new drive, together with enabling HBA (High Beam Assist).
