Volvo is recalling about 350 V-8-equipped XC90 crossovers from the 2010 and 2011 model years because the vehicles could experience a sudden loss of power steering, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, the power-steering fluid may leak from the oil pipe connection at the steering gear valve housing. This could cause a loss of power steering and increase the risk of a crash. The vehicles in the recall were built were built between Jan. 29 and Aug. 16, 2010. You can check the build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.

The recall is expected to begin on or before May 31. Dealers will replace the oil pipes on the power-steering rack at no charge. Owners can call Volvo at 800-458-1552 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
