Hyundai, Kia Recall Sedans, SUVs for Fire Risk

Hyundai and Kia are recalling over 168,000 vehicles including Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima sedans, Hyundai Santa Fe SUVs, ​and Kia Sportage SUVs because they may have been improperly repaired under a prior recall. That work could result in a fuel leak, raising the risk of a fire, the automakers say.

The recall follows dozens of reports of spontaneous engine fires unrelated to crashes in both vehicles.
