More than 95,500 Hyundai vehicles are being recalled due to risk of fire. The vehicles included in this recall are select model-year 2017 Sonata Hybrid sedans and Tucson SUVs.

If this is left unattended, the engine could become blocked and oil can leak onto the hot engine surfaces, increasing the risk of an engine fire. As of now, there have been 45 fires reported but no crashes or injuries related to this recall. Vehicle owners should go to the nearest dealer so that they can inspect the engine and, if need be, replace the engine at no cost.
