"A component within the Power Assist Steering system may collapse and restrict fluid flow within the PAS hose, causing a loss of power steering," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "The reduction of power steering assist can increase the steering effort needed, increasing the risk of a crash."
The automaker told federal safety regulators it is not aware of any accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected cars were built from July 2, 2013 to April 11, 2014.
