Steering Rack And Pinion problem #1

Electronic power steering control module and the steering rack & pinion (part number 20870559). Less than one month after purchasing this vehicle I was turning left to maneuver out of a tight spot and the vehicle chimed, gave an alert, and my steering became manual. It spent several weeks in the shop because the part was unavailable locally and had to be shipped in from canada. Repaired and had less than a week and lost control again. This time I was backing out of my driveway and turning to leave - same process. What if I was turning on a curve going 70? what if I was using cruise? what is I had a sharp curve that popped up and I lost control? reading similar recalls from 2004 and 2014 of steering issues. I believe this vehicle was overlooked in the recall and can cause serious issues if not discovered. Have been without a car for a month. Too many similarities to the previous recalll not to be included!.
