My Cmax has had the red power assist light come on twice.  Both times I have been able to reset by turning off the ignition and turning it back on.  I'm afraid the rack is about to go out and cost $1800 to replace.  


Any updates on this?  Anyone have Ford cover a 2013 Cmax under warranty?  


Thanks for the info!

My HHR had this problem - Chevy had a bad batch of electric power steering motors from Delco - there was a recall for Cobalt and HHR in Canada but not for HHR in US.  Eventually they did cover the cost of new power steering motor but then shortly thereafter thermostat stuck open in car and the cost to replace thermostat was curiously about the same as cost to replace power steering motor.
