We had the recall bolt break two days ago. Completely disabled the car, first the power steering went then the engine died, no battery power, and unable to jump start the rig. Luckily it died at the entrance to our neighborhood. There is no (easy) way to manually get it neutral so it just sat blocking the street for two hours until the tow truck showed. I would definitely recommend getting this fixed before it breaks. It would be a bad scene on the freeway.
