Owners of 2020 to 2022 Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride vehicles should park their vehicle outside and away from their home or other structures, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association.
The recall by Hyundai Motor America and Kia America recommends owners of these vehicles keep them away from structures due to a fire risk. Some 245,030 Hyundai Palisades and 36,417 Kia Tellurides are affected. Apparently, an accessory tow hitch may cause a short circuit as it allows moisture to enter the harness module. This can cause an electrical short whether the vehicle is parked and turned off or while it is being driven on the road.
So far, there are no known fires or injuries in the United States due to the issue.
Owners may take their vehicle to the dealership to have it inspected and repaired if necessary.
