Volkswagen dealers have been told not to sell about 800 new Golf and GTI hatchbacks because of a potential steering problem.

The front stabilizer links were installed improperly, according to Automotive News. If the links come loose or detach, it could become difficult to turn the steering wheel, possibly causing a crash.

The problem reportedly affects about 2,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada, including roughly 800 still on dealer lots. VW said it is notifying safety regulators and affected cars that have already been sold will presumably be recalled.

So far, there have been no reports of customers experiencing the problem, VW said.
