Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,600 model-year 2017-18 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid and model-year 2018 Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid cars
The Problem: The main relay within the power relay assembly may have inadequate connections between its contacts, causing increased electrical resistance that can overheat the rear seat, which is above the power relay assembly, increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the power relay assembly for damage and replace it if they find any. If no damage is found, the main relay will be replaced. Both repairs will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Hyundai will begin notifying owners Nov. 30. Owners can call the automaker at 855-371-9460, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
