A nose-gear steering issue is very different from the SK issues. If you read that site which reports aviation incidents, you will understand just how common nose wheel steering issues are. (like all the ATR incidents where one of the nose wheels detaches and rolls away) As to this FlyBe, one MLG collapse (during very bad weather) does not indicate that the Q400 is plagued with some systemic issue.
SK got ride of their Q400's for PR reasons. They felt that their passengers had a negative perception of the aircraft.

SK was found at fault for using chemicals that were not approved. They degraded a part and caise the trouble. There were no other airlines having that issue. The plane has flown for years with few problems.
