Hyundai and Kia are urging car owners impacted by a recent recall to park vehicles outside until they can be seen by dealers.

Vehicles from 2013 through 2015 are part of the recall, including Optimas, Sorentos and Santa Fe SUVs.

Hyundai and Kia say there’s a problem with the brake fluid in the brake hydraulic control unit.

The concern was first reported in 2018 and was investigated.

Hyundai said that the engine could catch fire even if it’s not turned on. The company is not aware of any vehicles catching fire while turned off and parked.

Earlier this year, Hyundai recalled 2006-2011 Elantra and 2007-2011 Elantra Touring because of an electrical issue that could lead to an engine fire as well.

In addition, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been investigating the automaker over complaints of engine fires and injuries unrelated to crashes.

Individuals impacted by the recall will be notified in mid-October. Dealers will replace faulty hydraulic electronic control units at no charge.

Vehicle owners can check the NHTSA recalls for more information.
