DETROIT - General Motors is recalling small number of 2013 Buick Encores sold in the United States because of a steering wheel fastener that may not have been properly installed.

GM says the problem could cause the steering wheel to come loose or separate from the steering column while driving.

The recall, involving just 144 vehicles equipped with heated steering wheels and manufactured between Dec. 9 and Dec. 29, 2012, does not apply to any vehicles sold in Canada.

General Motors says it will notify owners and have dealers inspect and make any necessary repairs at no charge.
