Over 93,000 Hyundai Tucson cars spreading from all across Australia have now been urgently recalled by Hyundai due to a particularly dangerous issue. The recall was carried out due to fears that the Hyundai Tucson's engine could actually burst directly into flames despite the car being turned off.

Why are Hyundai cars catching fire? 

In an article by News.com.au, over 93,000 cars have now been recalled over certain fears that the particular engine could in fact spontaneously burst straight into flames despite the car being turned off. A certain manufacturing error has been found in about 93,572 different Hyundai Tucson cars sold from the period of November 2014 all the way up to 2020.

The issue could potentially result in severe damage or even death. It was found that a particular electronic control circuit board within the car's Anti-Lock Braking System has actually been found to short circuit especially when the components are left exposed to moisture. The official Product Safety Australia has noted in a certain statement that there is in fact a risk of a particular engine compartment fire, even when this particular car is now turned off, as the circuit is still constantly powered.

According to the statement, this could actually increase the risk of users experiencing accidents, serious injuries, or even death to the vehicle occupants, the other road users, and even the bystanders as well as damage to the property. It was also stated that the short circuit still does not affect the whole functioning of the car's brake system.

The article also noted that anyone with that particular car has now been told to keep it parked in an open space and also away from any flammable materials or structures just like a garage. This particular move was said in order for people to keep their cars away from potentially harming anything or anyone around them.

Are there any recalls on Hyundai Tucson? 

The statement then detailed that the owners of the said affected vehicles will directly be contacted by the company itself, Hyundai Motor Company Australia, then be asked to contact a particular authorized Hyundai dealership in order to have a certain relay kit installed on the car's circuit board. This was said to prevent the car's power surge and also eliminate the total risk of a fire breaking out.

This is not actually the beginning of the mass recall on the Hyundai Tucson. According to an article by CNet, Hyundai has also previously filed documents along with the said National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in order to expand a specific Hyundai Tucson fire recall to over 427,000 more vehicles.

The movement was first launched back in September of 2020 when the popular automaker had recalled about 180,000 of the said SUVs for certain fire risk related problems to their own ABS brakes' hydraulic electronic control unit.
