Loose Nuts and Bolts Can Cause a Complete Loss of Steering in 578 Vehicles

Mazda is issuing a small recall for a big problem.

[Mazda] says the front strut and steering knuckle can separate and cause what Mazda calls a “significant loss of steering control and increased risk of a crash.

Calling it a “significant loss of steering” is interesting. If your car doesn’t start, would Mazda call that a “substantial lack of combustion”?

Semantics aside, the good news here is the issue only affects 578 cars. Unless you’re one of those 578, in which case I doubt you’d call this good news at all.
