Kia & Hyundai recall nearly 3.4 million cars for fire risk

Hyundai & Kia recall almost 3.4 million cars for fire risk Safety Recall


At Fire Patriots, ensuring vehicle safety is our top priority. We are concerned about the recent "park outside" recalls issued by Hyundai Motor America and Kia America in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for over 3.3 million vehicles due to a potential risk of car fires. This recall encompasses a variety of Hyundai and Kia models, and it's essential that you have all the information necessary to safeguard yourself and your loved ones.

**Understanding the Recall: NHTSA ID 23V-651000 and 23V-652000**

Hyundai and Kia have initiated a "park outside" recall due to concerns regarding a potential fire hazard. This risk extends to situations where the vehicle is parked and turned off, as well as during normal operation. The focus of this recall is the vehicle's anti-lock brake system module, which may develop an internal brake fluid leak, potentially causing an electrical short. This electrical short significantly raises the risk of an engine compartment fire, regardless of whether the vehicle is in motion or stationary.
