Jeep and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration have announced a new safety recall for the 2010 and 2011 Wrangler SUV.

The recall covers 20,459 vehicles, all of which may have improperly torqued bolts that secure the front and rear axles to the chassis. As a result, the bolts can come loose, potentially creating unwanted noise, vibration, or even a loss of steering control.

Jeep says that it will address the issue by re-torquing all 19 nuts and bolts in question to the maximum settings.

The recall is begin this month nationwide, and only includes model year 2010-11 Wranglers built up until July 12, 2010.
