Engines light up: Hyundai recalls hundreds of thousands of vehicles once again
Hyundai is recalling more than 390 vehicles in the US and Canada due to two problems that could cause an engine fire. In one review, owners are asked to park their cars outdoors until repairs are made. CBS News.
Most major review Applies to over 203 Santa Fe Sport SUVs from 000 to 2013. Some call it back a second time. Brake fluid can seep into the anti-lock braking system computer, causing a short circuit that could result in a fire. According to documents released on May 2015 by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners must park outdoors and away from buildings until the problem is fixed.
Dealers will replace the fuse and, if necessary, the computer. Owners will be notified in June.
A brake computer problem caused 18 fires in the US, but no one was hurt, according to documents.
The company says it has continued its investigation after the September recall and found replacing the fuse would reduce the safety risk.
“Hyundai is conducting this new recall to ensure the safety of our customers,” the company said in a statement.
Another review covers nearly 187 Elantra in 000 and 2019, as well as Konas and Velosters from 2020 to 2019. All have two-liter engines.
Piston rings can be improperly heat treated, which can result in engine damage, oil leakage and possible fire. Hyundai says the rings may be too hard and may be chipped, scratching the engine cylinder. According to the documents, the piston problem caused five fires, but not a single one was injured.
Dealers will inspect and replace the engine if necessary. They will also install software to measure piston noise. Owners will be notified at the end of June.
