Hyundai and Kia Recall 643,000 Vehicles in North America Over Fire Risk

Hyundai and Kia today announced two new recalls resulting from a reported fire hazard. In total, approximately 643,000 vehicles are affected by the campaign, including the Hyundai Santa Fe SUV (2013-2015), Kia Sorento SUV (2014-2015) and Kia Optima sedan (2013-2015).

In its filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Hyundai describes a situation where a brake fluid leak can occur and cause an electrical short circuit. For the Kia Optima and Sorento SUV, fluid may leak into the hydraulic electronic control unit and cause a short circuit, and potentially a fire.

In the case of the Santa Fe, fluid may leak inside the anti-lock brake system module and cause an electrical short circuit. A total of 283,803 Optima, 156,567 Sedona, and 151,205 Santa Fe are affected by the recall. Hyundai said the problem stems from a "suspected lack of rigor and quality at one supplier”.
