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. They were built between July 11, 2012 through March 12 of this year.

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. The company says it's not aware of any crashes or injuries linked to the defect.

Owners are being notified by letter. Dealers will replace the axle shaft free of charge
