After more than 100 complaints submitted to safety regulators, a proposed class-action has been filed saying Hyundai steering wheels can lock up while driving. The plaintiffs say the cars lose power steering without warning and make it impossible to safely drive, an allegedly similar problem that caused Hyundai to recall 173,000 Sonata mid-size cars in 2016. The lawsuit alleges the automaker has long known about the steering problems but has neglected to warn consumers or take actions to fix the loss of power steering.

The lawsuit covers the 2013-2016 Hyundai Accent and Elantra.
