Nissan will recall its 2014 Rogue compact crossover because the steering assembly may loosen.
The campaign affects 1,644 vehicles and is expected to begin by the end of June. Nissan has issued a stop sale order to its dealers until the issue is a addressed.
Vehicles affected by the flaw may have been assembled with the wrong bolt connecting the intermediate shaft to the upper steering assembly according to NHTSA documents. The bolts could fall out, leaving the driver unable to control the vehicle.
Nissan says it discovered the flaw during an internal audit and is directing its dealers to inspect the steering column assembly in the vehicles affected by the recall to determine if the incorrect bolt was used. Owners with affected Rogues receive notification asking them to bring their vehicle to a dealer service center for repairs.
