Ford Motor Co. is recalling 616 2014 model-year Focus and C-MAX Hybrid cars in North America so dealers can replace any faulty steering gears that might lead to loss of control, the Detroit News reports.

Just 32 of the 616 vehicles have already been delivered to dealers, however, and none of those has been sold to customers yet. A total of 502 are slated for the U.S., six are headed to federalized territories, and 108 are going to Canada, the newspaper reported.

The recalled vehicles, manufactured at the Michigan Assembly Plant Aug. 8-15, might have steering gears that are missing the required number of ball bearings.
