This recall includes models previously recalled under campaign #13V-385, these vehicles may have been incorrectly repaired. Dealers will inspect and replace the upper immediate shaft if necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed.

Vehicles in areas where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because severe corrosion can damage the lower intermediate steering shaft. This can cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and separate at the lower steering column bearing. Separation will result in complete loss of steering ability. Dealers will replace the lower intermediate steering shaft and inspect the upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing for damage, they will be repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed.
