Nissan has issued a voluntary recall of 1,063 Ariya electric SUVs due to a potential issue with their steering wheels.
Following reports of loose wheels from two dealers in January and February, the automaker discovered another Ariya in inventory with the issue.
According to the report filed with the National Highway Traffic Saftey Administration (NHTSA), the vehicles had new steering wheels installed at a port of entry due to a defect with the original and some of the work was done incorrectly.
"As part of the activity, a technician may have inadvertently applied the incorrect torque settings to the steering wheel bolt. In certain cases, the steering wheel bolt may not have been installed," the report said.
