Hyundai & Kia 2023 Vehicle Recall
Hyundai and Kia have issued a major recall for over 3.3 million vehicles due to a fire risk. If you own a Hyundai, Genesis, or Kia vehicle from the specified model years below, Hyundai, Genesis, Kia and the NHTSA advise that you park your vehicle outside, away from homes and structures, until repairs are made.
Affected Hyundai & Genesis Models:
- Accent (2012-2015)
- Azera (2012-2015)
- Elantra & Elantra Coupe (2011-2015)
- Equus (2014-2015)
- Genesis Coupe (2011-2015)

Affected Kia Models:

- Rondo (2010)
- Sorento (2011-2014)
- Soul (2011-2013)
- Sportage (2010-2013)
The issue stems from the vehicle’s anti-lock brake system module, which could leak brake fluid and cause an electrical short, leading to potential fires. Hyundai will be notifying owners for a fuse replacement, while Kia is finalizing a solution.
SGT believes the risk of fire renders the vehicles subject to the recall worth substantially less than they otherwise would be worth absent the issue. Moreover, having to park these cars outside and at a distance from a dwelling or other building is a significant inconvenience.
