(WTVM) - Hyundai is recalling about 23,000 SUVs in the U.S. and Canada because an axle can fail, causing the car to lose power.

The recall affects 2013 Santa Fe sport models with front-wheel drive and 2.4 liter, four cylinder engines. Hyundai says the right axle shaft can fail in rare cases. If that happens, the SUVs can lose power or roll away if parked on a slope.

Dealers will replace the axle shaft free of charge.
