Yes, I'm sure most of us would love to know about this. Please keep us updated. Anything safety related should be main priority here.
Promised to provide an update on my Electronic Power Steering (EPS) problems. Resetting the computer in the steering column fixed the problem for about one week, before my EPS started failing again. My 2011 Sonata SE is now back at the dealer waiting for parts--new steering column with EPS motor and computer. Dealer was told at least a one-week backlog for the parts I need. Pleased to report that my dealer support has been excellent and they were quick to put me in the rental car while I wait. As for non-EPS handling, out of my ~15 failures only one has occurred above 5 MPH. The one failure I had at highway speeds was managable. The car handles okay once you've got some speed, just like the old non-power steering days. But as I cautioned in my previous post, at parking lot speeds you almost can't turn the car without the EPS. If it fails at low speed, just brake the car to a stop and put the car in park. Turn the car off and back on and the EPS failure clears, but in my case the EPS fails often normally after my first turn after restarting the car. Also expect to see an Electronic Stability Control failure light at the same time if your EPS failure light comes on.
