Heavy steering on a new car - what's the cause?

I have a brand new Hyundai IX35 that seems reluctant to steer away from the straight ahead posirion at normal road speed. At slow manouvering speed it's fine but on the motorways it just likes the straight on position and tends to really snap back into the straight position after a lane change?

I am taking the car back on Tuesday to try and get them to sort it out. Just wondered if you had heard of this before so they don't try and pull the wool over my eyes?

Might have slightly too much 'toe out' on the front wheels. That would have that effect.
