NHTSA Recall No.: 98V155
Vehicle Description:
Description of Defect:The steering wheel set nut may not have been sufficiently tightened causing steering vibration and looseness. The nut can eventually come off allowing the steering wheel to separate from the steering shaft, loss of vehicle control, and increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy: Dealers will re-tighten the steering set nut.

NHTSA said manufacturers are required to mail a recall notice to all purchasers, owners and dealers when a safety defect or noncompliance with Federal safety standards is found. The agency urges owners to wait until they receive notification from the manufacturer before contacting their dealers to schedule the repair work. Not all vehicles of a particular make and model may be subject to the recall.
