The government has opened an investigation into possible loss of steering control in the 2010 Kia Soul, a boxy vehicle aimed at appealing to urban motorists.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in a posting Monday that it has received one complaint alleging complete steering loss.
The complaint said the steering shaft also interfered with the driver’s ability to hit the brakes.
The government says it is “very concerned” about the incident because the vehicle was only two months old and had low mileage.
The preliminary investigation covers more than 50,000 vehicles.
