Well, I have been looking in here for a couple years. In Feb. 18 we bought a '18 hatch diesel manual in White. 11,800 miles, and car has been great so far.... Today I shut it off at the fuel station, and when I restarted it, I lost steering assist with the message in the DIC. Took it to dealer and they say no active codes after a restart. (I never shut it off, took straight to dealer). We will see if it (the problem) comes back, and if it does, I have a history started with the dealer. At least this car is easily steerable without assist. My last car was a'15 SS, and though I had no steering failure, I heard they were very hard to steer without the EPS.
