Recall Details
On certain vehicles, the power steering hose retention clamp may have been incorrectly positioned during assembly. This could result in a detachment of the low pressure return hose, resulting in a large volume leak of power steering fluid, which would require greater driver effort to steer the vehicle. In some circumstances, the leaking fluid in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the return power steering hose for proper placement of the hose clamp, and reposition the hose clamp as needed.
