Hyundai and Kia to Recall 1.5M Vehicles!

Is Your Vehicle On The List?

April 7, 2017

According to the Associated Press, Kia and Hyundai are recalling nearly 1.2 million cars and SUVs noting the engines can fail and stall, ultimately increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers the Korean automakers' most popular models including 2013 and 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport SUVs and Sonata midsize cars.

Also covered are Kia Optima midsize cars from 2011 through 2014, Kia Sportage SUVs from 2011 through 2013 and Kia Sorento SUVs from 2012 through 2014.

The companies say debris left from manufacturing can restrict oil flow to connecting rod bearings which can then increase temperatures and cause the bearings to wear and fail.

With the recall scheduled to start May 19, Hyundai and Kia will notify owners and dealers will inspect and replace the engine block, if needed, at no cost.
