(CNN) -- Luxury automaker Mercedes-Benz is recalling about 85,000 vehicles from certain 2010 and 2011 models due to potential steering problems.
The recall affects 2010 C-Class cars as well as the 2010 and 2011 E-Class coupe and cabriolet models.
Steering systems in the cars "may fail due to the loss of power steering fluid," the automaker said in a statement.
In such instances, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, according to the automaker.
Those affected can take the cars to a Mercedes dealership for a free checkup.
The recall starts this month.
