On certain vehicles, the left front axle steering knuckle may have some casting imperfections that could reduce the strength of the knuckle.

This could potentially cause the left front steering knuckle to fracture under load, which would increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.

Correction: Dealers will inspect the front left steering knuckle for the affected batch number and replace it as necessary.
