DETROIT: Hyundai is recalling 173,000 Sonata midsize cars in the U.S. because the power steering can fail, making them harder to steer and increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers Sonatas from the 2011 model year when the car was Hyundai's top-selling U.S. vehicle. The company says in government documents that the computer circuit board in the power steering control unit can become damaged. If that happens, the cars would still have manual steering, but it would take more effort to turn them and could cause a wreck.

Hyundai says it's not aware of any crashes or injuries from the problem.

The company will notify owners and dealers will replace the control unit at no cost starting May 30.
