Gov't to decide on recall of Hyundai, Kia cars this week

The South Korean government on Friday ordered auto makers Hyundai and Kia Motors to recall about 240,000 cars, after a tip off from a whistleblower, the media reported.

Hyundai employee Kim Gwang-ho raised concerns about defects affecting a dozen vehicle models manufactured by the company and its affiliate Kia. It's the first time the ministry has imposed a compulsory vehicle recall. On May 12, the Ministry announced that a recall would be issued for five design defects uncovered at Hyundai and Kia. "However we have arrived at the conclusion that a recall is reasonable for consumer protection", Hyundai Motor Group said. The models include some of the carmakers' most popular ones - the Sonata, the Genesis and the Santa Fe. Immediately after the Ministry's announcement, Hyundai and Kia said they would accept the recall decision.

In response to the recall order, Hyundai and Kia said in a joint statement that they accept the decision and will take all necessary steps to fix or replace the faulty parts in the affected models as early as possible. The vehicles cited were found to have problems with their vacuum pipes, fuel hoses, parking brake light problems and other faulty components, the statement said.

The Transport Ministry asked the state prosecutor to investigate whether the two companies allegedly covered up a total of five flaws which affect 12 models. After investigating 32 vehicle defects leaked a year ago by a whistleblower at Hyundai Motor, the Ministry recommended last month that Hyundai and Kia initiate a voluntary recall for some of the defects.

Following allegations that the Tamil Nadu government did not give proper assistance to Kia Motors, due to which they shifted their business to Andhra Pradesh, the state government on Thursday clarified that the company was not setting up their plant in Tamil Nadu due to their own internal policy.

Hyundai and Kia earlier refused to act voluntarily, saying there was no safety risk.
