Loose Magnet in Electronic Power Steering System

Honda is recalling a small number of 2017-2018 Civics and CR-Vs because of a loose magnet in the electronic power steering system. How bad can a loose magnet be? “Unless it’s properly secured, the magnet can dislodge and during a turn where the wheel is as far as it can go, the power steering assist will be applied in the opposite direction.

Oh. I’m guessing that’s a jarring and unwelcome surprise.
