Should potential steering probs scare me off from buying a 2013?

I may have the opportunity to buy a 2013 C-Max Energi from a friend at KBB Trade-in Value. The car has 100K miles on it and is up to date on repairs.

I have read that the power steering assist problem that other Ford models had has also popped up on C-Maxes, but not to the point of recall.

My teen son will likely drive the car some and I am concerned that the steering could make the car dangerous. I don't know if this sort of issue is more or less likely to happen this late in the car's life.

Any thoughts out there? It could be a nice run-around car for a few years before we move on to a newer car.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have a 2013 and we a had a recall to prevent the issue, so no, as long as the car has had all the recalls taken care of.

Nah I don't think so, they are mostly solved by now and yeah it does make for a great all around car especially for your son to drive around
