Hyundai fire risk warning as 91,000 vehicles recalled

South Korea's Hyundai Motor and Kia are recalling almost 92,000 vehicles in the US because of a fire risk. This is the latest in a series of fire-related recalls of Hyundai and Kia vehicles in recent years. As well as the fire risk, heat damage could trigger a short circuit affecting other vehicle controllers, Hyundai said. Separately, the NHTSA said in March that Hyundai and Kia had issued recalls for more than 570,000 vehicles and urged "Owners to park their vehicles outside and away from homes and other structures until the recall is remedied." Those recalls were related to a potential electrical issue that could start fires in the wiring used when a vehicle tows a trailer. In July, Hyundai announced a recall of more than 13,500 vehicles in Australia over a potential engine fault that could cause fires.
