Our main priority is the safety and well-being of our children. We strive to create a nurturing environment for them and trust the products we use to transport our precious cargo—the recent Hyundai and Kia recall affecting just over 570,000 U.S. vehicle owners.

Hyundai and Kia have issued an urgent warning to all affected vehicle owners, advising them to park their cars outside and away from structures or other vehicles until repairs are completed.

Kia Motors Corporation, commonly known as Kia Motors., headquartered in Seoul, is South Korea's second-largest automobile manufacturer, following the Hyundai Motor Company, with sales of over 3.3 million vehicles in 2015.

The reason for the recall is the risk of fire hazards due to a short circuit in some vehicles with a tow hitch harness.

Hyundai said it is aware of six potential incidents related to the recall, including one fire. There are no confirmed crashes or injuries related to the recall issue. Kia said it has no reports of fires.

The affected models include the 2022-2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz, 2019-2023 Santa Fe, 2021-2023 Santa Fe Hybrid, 2022-2023 Santa Fe Plug-in Hybrid, and 2022-2023 Kia Carnival.
