    Reckon! Our MY10 and 12 never failed. Lucky I guess. Our 2013 Redline has been fine too. In fact it's been a cracker of a car all round. No issues at all really. Effortless driving and heaps of fun. Still love it as much as day one.

    Must be just 'hit and miss', or 'the luck of the draw' whether they fail or not.
    I pulled both failures apart, they worked fine mechanically, I'm just assuming the micro switch goes intermittent...

    Yeah. Two earlier ones failed on me. As you say, luck of the draw.

    6 days later and a trip back to Sydney from Port Stephens and all is good. The message did not appear and all seems fine.

    Had the steering lock warning a few time, everytime it related to the steering wheel lock having weight on it, so it can't unlock, would turn the steering wheel a little bit to take weight off lock, all ok.
    Any car with push button start, is going to have the same problem.

    Thread bump. Had this message pop up today will keep an eye on if it returns some good info here.
    Maybe it will be the same as my check left hand rear indicator message that appears once in a while, despite the indicator actually works with the message displayed..
