The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said on Dec. 30 that it has issued a voluntary corrective measure (recall) to Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors after defects in production were found in 642,272 units of six models manufactured and sold by the companies.
For instance, 130,140 Grand Starex (TQ), 295,982 Porter 2 (HR), 3,312 Solati, and 3,992 Mighty Narrow were found to have errors in setting the location information transfer time of the air intake control valve.
The number of revolutions per minute (RPM) may be unstable and the engine warning lamp may be lit, and the possibility of starting off while driving were confirmed and the recall will be made.
The 31,193 Sorento cars manufactured and sold by Kia Motors are equipped with SCC (Smart Cruise Control). An error in the forward pedestrian cognitive information transmission communication method confirmed the possibility that the braking function of the anti-collision assist will not be activated.
Kia's 177,653 Bongo 3 (PU) units are also recalled because of an error in setting the location information transfer time of the air intake control valve, which could cause the RPM to be unstable and the engine warning lamp to turn on and may turn off while driving.
