Nissan North America is recalling certain model year 2014 Infiniti Q50 vehicles equipped with Direct Adaptive Steering.

The affected vehicles received a power steering software version that, should the engine compartment reach freezing temperatures, the power steering software may disable the electric steering system and also may delay the engagement of the mechanical steering backup system.

The disablement of the steering systems could result in a loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan will contact the owners of all recalled Q50 vehicles and arrange to have the vehicles towed to the nearest Infiniti dealership for a free software update. A complimentary loaner vehicle will be provided to owners while necessary repairs are made.
