In a recent announcement earlier on Wednesday, Hyundai has recalled 88,000 older cars with faulty anti-lock braking system wiring that could potentially cause vehicles to catch fire.
The latest recalls covers some of the 2006 Sonatas and all 2006 through 2011 Azeras models. The company revealed that water can leak into the ABS control modules which can ultimately cause engine compartment fire. At the moment, repair for faulty system is set to begin on February 23.
While the faulty system might lead to serious accidents, it’s a pretty rare one and thus far there has been only one overheated ABS module related incident in South Korea and one in the United States.
