The problem is causing steering wheels to fall outward and resulting in a loss of control.

A steering wheel issue leading to loss of control has caused Chrysler to recall over 330,000 Jeep vehicles, ABC News reports.

In total, 338,238 vehicles have been recalled, consisting of the 2021-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L and 2022-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

According to documents from NHTSA, the upper control arm ball joint and steering knuckle are prone to separating, which can lead to the wheel falling outward and a loss of control of the vehicle.

Chrysler said it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries resulting from the issue. Dealers are being instructed to replace the upper control arm pinch bolts on affected vehicles.
