Hyundai Recalls 270,000 Vehicles

July 20, 2020
Hyundai recalls hundreds of thousands of cars due to fire risk.

July 20, 2020—Hyundai is recalling vehicles that are equipped with tire inflator kits. When the inflator is plugged into the 12-volt power outlet, once commonly used as a cigarette lighter, a fire risk emerges. 

According to Consumer Reports, the outlets in some vehicles may not have been installed correctly, disabling a thermal fuse that protects against overheating. If yours was installed incorrectly and you were to unknowingly plug in your tire inflator, it could cause a fire. 

The models being recalled were manufactured between 2011 and 2012 and include the Accent, Elantra, Sonata Hybrid, and Veloster.
