According to the AP, “The concerned vehicles may be equipped with a faulty electronic stability control system (ESC) which may be faulty and will result in excessive yaw, or rotation. The excessive yaw rates will consequence in the vehicle’s direction of motion, by causing it to tilt too far prior to the application of the brake via the ESC,” which could result in an accident.
No injuries or accidents have been reported.
