Infiniti is recalling about 60,000 Q50 sedans around the world over an issue with the steering.
The issue is with the car’s direct adaptive steering system, which is a drive-by-wire setup. Infiniti says that in some cases, a software glitch “can lead to a lack of steering responsiveness and change in turning radius,” Infiniti spokesman Stefan Weinmann told Automotive News.
This feature allows the Q50 to offer partial autonomous driving, which lets the driver go hands free at speeds of over 37 mph.
Infiniti will begin notifying owners of the issue in late June and early July. The brand didn’t announce a fix for the problem, but a software update is likely.
