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 tire.

An overheated accessory outlet increases the risk of fire.

What to do

Hyundai is currently developing a remedy, which will be performed free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin August 28, 2020.

Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at (855) 371-9460. Hyundai's number for this recall is 193.
