Hyundai Motor America is recalling 272,126 model year 2011-2012 Elantra and Sonata Hybrids, and model year 2012 Accents and Velosters.

The 12V accessory socket outlet may have been over-tightened during installation, possibly disabling the thermal fuse and allowing the outlet to overheat with prolonged use, such as by using the Tire Mobility Kit air compressor to inflate a tyre, reports ConsumerAffairs.

An overheated accessory outlet increases the risk of fire.

In rectifying the error, Hyundai is currently developing a remedy, which will be performed free of charge, report stated.

The recall of the affected vehicle models is expected to begin August 28, 2020.

Therefore, owners may contact Hyundai Customer Service on (855) 371-9460, and Hyundai’s number for this recall is 193.
