Kia and Hyundai are recalling 3.37 million vehicles in the United States due to the risk of engine fires. The recall affects a variety of models from 2010 to 2015, including the Elantra, Sonata, Tucson, and Santa Fe.
The problem is caused by a brake fluid leak that can cause an electrical short in the ABS module. This can lead to a fire, even if the car is parked and turned off.
Kia and Hyundai are urging owners to park their vehicles outside and away from structures until the recall repairs are completed. Owners will be notified by mail when the repairs are available.
The recall is a major blow to Kia and Hyundai, which have been struggling to keep up with demand for their vehicles. The companies have also been facing scrutiny over the quality of their products.
The recall is also a reminder of the dangers of brake fluid leaks. Brake fluid is a highly flammable liquid, and even a small leak can cause a fire.
If you own a Kia or Hyundai vehicle that is affected by the recall, it is important to take action immediately. Park your vehicle outside and away from structures, and contact your dealer to schedule a repair.

The recall repairs are expected to be available in the coming weeks.
