The garage you've taken it to must be incompetent if they knew of your fault and failed to locate it.
Modern engines are effectively computer controlled robots, so the fault you describe may have a number of causes. But from experience the most likely cause is either a loose wiring connector, a chafed or fractured wire or a failing ignition coil pack. Of those, the coil pack is most suspect, especially if the fault tends to appear only once the engine has warmed up. If you find that the car starting is difficult on a hot engine but fine when the engine is stone cold then it further suggests a failed coil pack.
Testing the coil pack properly means it must be tested under full load and that needs special equipment. In practice, the easiest test is to substitute a suspect coil pack with a known good one.
Please note that I stress the phrase "most likely". My suggestion cannot be a guaranteed solution as I have no access to your vehicle and cannot perform any diagnostic tests.

VSC stands for vehicle stability control. That has nothing to do with the gas cap.
Maybe, the starter or battery is weak or bad. Or, the starter to battery connection at the battery is bad.
Try to disconnect the battery, clean and wire brush the connections, and reinstall the connections to see if the car will start up after that.
Note, that batteries have an average life expectancy of 3 years, typically. I see that your car is 3 years old, so if it had the original battery, it's possible it needs to be tested at a battery retailer to see if it is alright.
Good luck on this repair.
