Toyota Motor Sales USA plans a recall of around 5,650 2014 Toyota Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon and Avalon Hybrid vehicles to check for a suspension problem that could affect steering.

The left front suspension lower arm may have an improperly manufactured bolt hole where it connects to the ball joint. This could affect bolt clamping force. If this condition exists, in the event of a severe impact to the lower ball joint, which could result from varying road surfaces during normal driving, the lower arm could separate from the ball joint. Separation of the lower arm can cause a loss of steering control.

Toyota said it was not aware of any crashes, injuries, or fatalities related to the issue.

Dealers will replace the left front lower suspension arm.
