Korean car manufacturer, Hyundai, is recalling over 430,000 of its cars due to a problem that might start engine fires. According to a press release, these cars have a major issue with the antilock brake computer. According to the company, water can get into this computer, and cause an electrical short. This short can pose a major fire hazard. Those with affected vehicles should visit their dealership as soon as possible. A fire can be started from the electrical short, even when the vehicle is off. The recall is said to start on April 3rd.
This and past problems have triggered the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to launch an investigation. This investigation started last April after a similar issue occurred with other Hyundai and Kia vehicles. There were 3,100 fires and over 100 injuries. According to a spokesman for Hyundai, this recall is not at all related to past engine fire issues.
