Hyundai Tucson ABS Recall Affects 797,000 SUVs

hyundai-tucson-abs-recall-250.png

A Hyundai Tucson ABS recall includes nearly 797,000 SUVs that shouldn't be parked near anything that could burn, at least not until the 40-amp ABS module fuses are replaced with 25-amp versions.

The 2016-2021 Hyundai Tucson ABS (anti-lock braking system) recall is necessary because the hydraulic electronic control unit (HECU) may corrode and cause an electrical short-circuit and an engine compartment fire.

Ford To Recall 3 Million Vehicles For Airbags At $610 Million Cost In The US

Ford Motor Co said on Thursday it will recall 3 million vehicles for air bag inflators that could rupture, at a cost of $610 million. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Tuesday ordered Ford to issue the recall for driver-side air bag inflators, rejecting the automaker's 2017 petition to avoid it.

The defect, which in rare instances leads to air bag inflators rupturing and sending potentially deadly metal fragments flying, prompted the largest automotive recall in U.S. history of more than 67 million inflators. Worldwide, about 100 million inflators installed by 19 major automakers have been recalled.

New Kia Sorento recalled for eCall system update

2020 Kia Sorento.jpg

Kia has issued a recall for all new Sorento models built between the 1 September and 14 December 2020, regarding an issue with the SUV’s SOS call system.

Normally, when an eCall equipped car is involved in an accident, the system transmits the car’s VIN to an emergency call centre, which can then dispatch the local emergency services to the scene. However, Kia found that, if one of the Sorento’s airbags is deployed in the accident, the car’s SOS function wouldn’t contact the emergency call centre, potentially leaving the driver stranded.

The issue affects 965 cars sold in the UK – and Kia is currently contacting affected owners with the request that they return their cars to their local dealership for remedial action. The fix will be applied at no cost to the owner.

Kia says the issue should be quick to remedy, with only a minor software tweak required to get the SOS function working properly. The update will take around half an hour but, due to social distancing protocols, Kia says customers should allocate up to an hour for the work.

Tesla To Recall 135,000 U.S. Vehicles Under Pressure From Auto Safety Regulators


Tesla Inc has agreed to recall 134,951 Model S and Model X vehicles with touchscreen displays that could fail and raise the risk of a crash after U.S. auto safety regulators sought the recall last month, according to a recall posted on a government website Tuesday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) made the unusual recall request in a formal Jan. 13 letter to Tesla, saying it had tentatively concluded the 2012-2018 Model S and 2016-2018 Model X vehicles pose a safety issue. Automakers usually agree to voluntary fixes before the auto safety agency formally seeks a recall.
