 Description of the problemWhile driving at 60 miles an hour on a 4 lane highway, i was going around a slight curve when the lane assist came on. I was in the left lane and not near the left line in road, but centered in the middle of lane. I heard one beep and then the steering wheel became very loose in my hand and it took me a few seconds to gain control of the steering wheel. This also happened while going on a slightly curved city street going about 40 miles an hour. It scared the dickens out of me as it was not what i expected the lane assist to do. I went back to dealership and told them about the steering and they said i just needed to get used to how the electric steering worked. After it happened a couple more time i made appointment for someone to take a test drive. The technician felt a slight swaying but said it was the type of steering of the lane assist. He suggested i turn it off and not use it for a while and see how car then handled. The technician filed case # 26296330423, no problem found with vehicle, system is operating as designed, no repair attempt performed. (eqmr was also filled out and submitted.) i have not driven my forester with the assist on since this happened. I have not had this loose wheel steering happen again. I am convinced it is the lane assist and feel it is not working properly in my vehicle. I will probably never use it again. Lane departure is fine, does what it's supposed to do. I have no complaints with the dealership or their technician, they were very thorough and kind. This lane assist is just an aspect of this safety technology that i don not like how it works. Or is there something wrong with it in my car that this has not happened to others yet? I do understand how lane assist works, i did test drives having it on and it would bring me back to my lane if i went over the line without a blinker on.
