Hyundai Motor will recall 129,000 vehicles, including Santa Fe, in the U.S. due to engine failure and the consequent risk of fire, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said on Dec. 4.

Among the objects to the recall are Santa Fe produced in 2012, Veloster between 2015 and 2016, and Sonata Hybrid cars between 2011 and 2013, and in 2016.

The connecting rod bearings inside the engine may wear out early, possibly causing engine damage. This could cause the engine to shut down and cause oil to leak onto a hot surface, raising the risk of fire, U.S. transportation authorities explained, according to foreign news agencies, including AP.

NHTSA said car dealers should check the engine of the vehicles and replace it if bearing abrasion is detected.

Meanwhile, Hyundai Moto said that all recalled vehicles will be updated with the engine Knock Sensor Detection System (KSDS) software that can detect signs before engine problems occur.
