The Dodge Journey is being recalled to address a possible issue with its power steering.

According to FCA, the recall affects 10,944 units in the U.S. equipped with optional block heaters. The Dodge Journey recall will address fluid-line durability in extreme, cold-weather conditions. The American automaker found that some lines carrying power steering fluid may leak at engine startup, particularly in extreme cold weather. As a result, power steering is affected, making it more difficult to steer the vehicle.
