Kia and Hyundai recently announced a recall of more than 3.37 million vehicles in the United States due to the potential for fires. The recall affects several popular Kia and Hyundai models, which include many of their older vehicles from the 2011-2014 model years. The recall was prompted by reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that certain cars involved in the recall may be at risk of engine compartment fires. This is because the vehicles are equipped with a flawed Theta II turbo engine, which can be damaged under normal driving conditions and overheat, resulting in potential fire hazards. Kia and Hyundai have advised that owners of any affected vehicles should contact their nearest dealer or authorized repair facility to have the issue resolved without charge. The replacement procedure involves the installation of a new engine control module, software update, and a revised fuel delivery pipe assembly. Kia and Hyundai will be filing documents with the NHTSA in the coming weeks to officially recall the affected vehicles. In the meantime, consumers can determine if their cars are on the recall list by using Kia and Hyundai’s websites or by contacting the automakers directly. Kia and Hyundai have been working closely with the NHTSA to take measures to ensure the safety of their vehicles. The two automakers have also promised that they will cover all costs related to the recall process. They may also provide additional assistance to affected consumers. This is not the first time that Kia and Hyundai have had to recall vehicles due to dangers of fires. Back in 2015, the two automakers recalled almost 1.7 million vehicles due to similar issues. This recall is yet another reminder to all consumers to remain vigilant when it comes to car safety. All vehicles should be regularly inspected for potential issues, and any concerns should be addressed and resolved immediately.
