Manufacturer Hyundai Motor America


Potential Number of Units Affected 16,487



Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2013 Veloster vehicles that are equipped with 1.6 liter turbo engines.

1 Associated Investigation

Non-crash Fires
Dated opened: August 21, 2018

On June 11, 2018, the Center for Auto Safety (CAS) petitioned NHTSA to conduct a defect investigation into non-crash fires on model year 2011-2014 Kia Optima and Sorento, and Hyundai Sonata and Santa Fe vehicles. The CAS petition cited at least 120 Vehicle Owner Questionnaire (VOQ) reports of fires and additional 229 VOQs of melted wires, smoke and/or burning odors, indicating potential fires on these vehicles, as of June 7, 2018.

ODI’s preliminary review of the VOQs indicates the majority of the reported fires appears to be related to the engine failures covered by two current Recall Queries: RQ17-003 on Kia vehicles and RQ17-004 on Hyundai vehicles. ODI is opening a Defect Petition to review the petition, VOQs, Early Warning Data, and other information on the subject vehicles followed by a decision to grant or deny the petition.

The following VOQ numbers (120 fire reports) are cited by the petitioner and can be viewed at www.nhtsa.gov.
