Oh - in case someone says anything we have a optima 2014 sx with another car in the familly.The first recall affects some 203,000 Santa Fe Sport models from 2013 through 2015, and involves brake fluid leaking into the anti-lock brake computer, causing an electrical short and possibly a resulting fire.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners should keep their vehicles parked outside and away from buildings until the issue is fixed. To fix the problem, dealers will replace a fuse, and possibly the computer as well, if deemed necessary.
A second recall affects 187,000 Elantra models from 2019 to 2020 with the 2.0-litre engine, as well as 2019 through 2021 Kona and Veloster with the same engine. The recall states the piston rings may not have been heat treated properly, causing them to be too hard and possibly chip inside the engine.
