Paper from the fuel filter can enter the high-pressure pump and damage it in more than 35,000 Hyundai Kona SUVs built between late March 2018 and early October 2021. It can cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of an accident.
Nearly 300,000 Hyundai iX35 SUVs from 2013 to 2015 and over 90,000 Santa Fe SUVs from 2015 to 2018 may have a problem with the anti-lock braking system (ABS) modules, which can experience an internal electrical short. This increases the risk of a fire in the engine compartment. Tucson was recalled in March 2021 due to the same problem. We reported this in the article Hyundai recalls thousands of SUVs Tucson due to fire risk also in Europe (week 12/21).

Toyota has announced the third recall in a short time for the Aygo X. This time, the brake booster is to blame, which may fail on cars built between June 30 and August 22, 2022.
Kia recalls older Carnival and Sorento models, which may roll on their own. Fords Ranger made this year (2022) may have a poorly tightened steering column.
