Hyundai and Kia Recall Over 3 Million Vehicles Due to Fire Risk

Hyundai and Kia are in the process of recalling over 3.4 million vehicles in the United States due to a fire risk. Both automakers advised customers to park their vehicles outside due to the potential for engine compartment fires. The vehicles in question include multiple models from 2010 through 2019 including Hyundai’s Santa Fe SUV and Kia’s Sorrento SUV.

In addition to parking their vehicles outdoors, both vehicle manufacturers warned owners to keep their distance from their vehicles until repairs are completed. Documents posted by U.S. safety regulators on Wednesday showed that the anti-lock brake control module in the vehicles concerned can leak fluid, which in turn can cause an electrical short and a fire while the vehicles are parked or being driven.

Both companies have confirmed that they will replace the anti-lock brake fuse in the vehicles concerned at no extra cost to owners. Kia is set to begin sending notification letters to customers on November 14, while Hyundai will do the same starting November 21.
