I haven't noticed any steering issues, fortunately.
But I think you are slightly wrong about the lane keeping thing, Gene. My understanding is that the K (1st gen) has lane departure warning, but not actual lane keep assist. I think it just beeps and flashes at you when you get over the line, but cannot access the steering to actually push you back like some models can.
This certainly seems to be the way mine works.
