Well I thought I would take my beautiful SX Turbo out for a spin today. After about 15 minutes, noticed something "odd" with the Elec. Stability Control (ESC). When I go into a smooth curve doing about 25-40 mph. The ESC kicked in. I didn't noticed it at all on curves going to the left, but only to the right. So I turned off the ESC button and it still kept fighting me on right curves. Vibration and break pumping, didn't matter if I had the button on or off. About 35 min into the ride it started getting Worse. Any slight right turn of the wheel it again fought me on the ESC. At the 45 min mark, ALL my Warning lights LIT UP! I pulled over and most of all the warning lights are lit. See Photos! It must be all those miles I have on the car, about, as you can see 1,107 miles. It must be time to get my third Seltos, lol. I called the dealer and Immediately they wanted to see it. I now have a loaner car and waiting for their evaluation, hopefully tomorrow. Great timing, brand new car and this happens right before the 4th of July weekend.
Has Anyone Else been having Issues with the ESC?

WOW! That's like all the lights. Don't turn on the steering assist. Wonder what the car might think and try to do. Definitely take it to the dealer. Hope it works out OK.
