WASHINGTON Nissan is recalling 1,644 2014 Nissan Rogue crossovers because the steering assembly may loosen, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

A stop-sale order has been issued to dealers until the vehicles can be repaired.

"In the affected vehicles, an incorrect bolt may have been used to connect the intermediate shaft to the upper steering assembly," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "The incorrect bolts could loosen and fall out, resulting in a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash."

No other Nissan or Infiniti models are affected, the company told federal safety regulators.

The problem was discovered when a rattle was heard during an internal audit of the Rogue. Nissan said in a document filed with NHTSA that it had not received any reports of steering-column issues in the affected vehicles as of February.

The affected vehicles were built from January 10, 2014 through January 17, 2014.

Nissan dealers will inspect the steering-column assembly. If an incorrect bolt is located, the dealer will remove and reassemble the steering-column assembly using the correct bolt. The recall is expected to begin by the end of June. Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: Owners of the 2014 Rogue can expect to get a letter from Nissan detailing next steps by the end of June. But if you have a problem with your vehicle in the meantime, take it into your local dealer.
