The recall is addressing a problem with a temporary loss of power steering assist, especially at slower speed maneuvers. Since the steering may get unexpectedly heavy, this presents a safety concern.
The remedy is for your dealership to update the software that controls the steering system. This will be done free of charge. No hardware changes or modifications are required under this recall.
