Hyundai has issued a recall for certain model-year 2018 Santa Fe sport utility vehicles as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issues a consumer alert – park these vehicles outside – due to the potential for under-hood, ABS-based vehicle fires. This recall is in addition to another one issued in February 2022 for certain 2016-2018 Santa Fe models for the same issue. This recall adds 44,396 additional Hyundai and Kia vehicles to the list of those recalled (which includes hundreds of thousand vehicles) in the U.S. and other markets to deal with this issue. According to the NHTSA announcement, “To date, there have been four fires in the United States associated with this defect, but no injuries.”
