Summary: The involved vehicles were assembled with improperly manufactured steering arm knuckles. Should an improperly manufactured steering arm knuckle fracture and separate, the steering linkage tie rod may disengage from the knuckle.
Consequence: Complete disengagement of the steering arm could occur at any time while the vehicle is in motion, resulting in loss or serious impairment of steering control and the potential for a vehicle accident.
Remedy: The dealer will inspect for cracking in the steering arm knuckles on all vehicles and, if necessary, replace them free of charge.
