The engine management software could cause premature ignition of the air/fuel mixture in the engine cylinder. Pre-ignition could cause excessive cylinder pressure eventually leading to engine damage. This could lead to an engine stall in motion and to increased risk of fire.
The Hyundai Veloster models affected by this recall were manufactured between 1 December 2011 and 17 November 2014.
