Recall 18V663000

Power Steering Assist Fails

Recall Details

The magnet that controls the torque sensor output signal for the electronic power steering system may become dislodged, causing steering assist to be provided in the opposite direction than that which is needed. Dealers will replace the steering gearbox assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The power steering assist that is provided electronically may be applied in the opposite direction than desired, causing difficulty maneuvering the steering and a loss of power steering assist. This can result in an accident.
