Kia, Hyundai warn drivers of recalled vehicles to park outside, citing fire risk

Hyundai, Kia’s Korean sibling company, is recalling about 1.6 million vehicles in the U.S. for an issue with the antilock brake system module.

The module could leak brake fluid internally and cause an electrical short, resulting in an engine compartment fire while parked or driving.

The affected vehicles are the 2011-15 Elantra, Genesis Coupe and Sonata Hybrid; 2012-15 Accent, Azera and Veloster; 2013-15 Elantra Coupe and Santa Fe; 2014-15 Equus; 2010-12 Veracruz; 2010-13 Tucson; 2015 Tucson Fuel Cell; and 2013 Santa Fe Sport.

Hyundai told NHTSA there have been 21 vehicle fires and 22 “thermal incidents,” such as smoking, melting or burning, in the U.S. based on reports received from June 15, 2017, through June 1, 2023.

The automaker said there have been no crashes, injuries or deaths.

A Hyundai spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mando also supplies the antilock brake system assembly, according to a recall report submitted Sept. 22 to NHTSA.

To fix the issue, dealers will replace the antilock brake system fuse.

Dealers and vehicle owners will be notified by Nov. 21.
