Investigation into steering in Hyundai Santa Fe

Posted:

DETROIT (WKOW) -- Federal safety officials are investigating a steering problem in Hyundai Santa Fe SUVs.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a fastener can come loose, causing the steering shaft to come part and drivers to lose control of the vehicle.

The investigation covers about 70,000 Santa Fes from the 2011 model year. Investigators will determine if the problem is bad enough for Hyundai to recall the SUVs.

The agency says no injuries or crashes have been reported.
