  • 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Electric

    Hyundai is recalling 10,575 Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid models from 2017 and 2018 to replace a wiring relay in the drive system. The recall mirrors a similar problem announced last month with the Ioniq's platform-mate, the Kia Niro, which was also recalled. Bad connections in a drive-system relay can cause the relay to overheat and lead to a fire, the automaker said in the recall notice. Drivers may see some early warning signs if the HEV warning light appears while driving, or the car won't start. The recall affects Ioniqs built between November 16, 2016 and August 16, 2017 READ THIS...
