NHTSA said on its website that the recall affects some 2010 models cars and trucks including the Chrysler 300 and Sebring, the Dodge Avenger, Challenger and Journey, along with 2011 Dodge Ram pickups.

The steering fluid hoses in the affected vehicles can separate at the crimped end and leak fluid onto hot engine components that could cause a fire, according to NHTSA.
