Hyundai and Kia are issuing another recall for approximately 90,000 more cars and SUVs in the United States, urging owners to take precautions due to potential fire risks. Owners of these vehicles are being advised to park them outdoors, away from structures and other vehicles, to reduce the risk of fire.
Incognito Blog reported a previous recall of 570,000 Hyundai and Kia vehicles in March 2023. These recalls have been prompted by concerns that certain electronic components within the vehicles can overheat, leading to possible melting and fire.
According to CNN’s report, this recent recall covers a range of Hyundai and Kia models, including 2023 Hyundai Konas, Tucsons, Sonatas, Elantras, and the 2023 and 2024 Palisades. Kia models involved in the recall include 2023 Soul and Sportage vehicles, along with 2023 and 2024 Seltos. The companies plan to start notifying affected owners about the recall starting in late September, and as usual, the defective parts will be replaced free of charge.
