Details of the Hyundai and Kia Hybrid Recall

According to Consumer Reports, the recalls affect 27,029 2017 Hyundai Niro hybrids and 10,156 2017 Ioniq hybrids.
Recall documents suggest a manufacturing defect could cause oil leaks which in turn could cause an electrical short.

Neither Kia nor Hyundai were aware of crashes or injuries related to the defect.
The recall is expected to begin June 15, 2018. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 800-333-4542.

This does not appear to affect the 2018 Niros at this time!
