Researching on the current manufacturer recalls, we found the ongoing saga for Hyundai and Kias, but now Toyota has been added to the latest recall list!

February 21 and April 17 of 2024, Toyotaannounced a recall affecting approximately 211,000 units of the 2023-2024 Prius and Prius Prime globally. The issue is related to the potential for water to enter and short-circuit the electronic rear door latches, which could cause the doors to open unexpectedly (Toyota USA Newsroom). Additionally, Toyota is recalling around 280,000 units of the 2022-2024 Tundra, Tundra Hybrid, Sequoia, and Lexus LX 600 models due to a transmission issue that could cause the vehicle to creep forward inadvertently when in neutral, increasing the risk of a crash (Toyota USA Newsroom).

For the ongoing chronicles of Hyundai and Kia, February 21, 2024 they announced they are recalling over 170,000 electric vehicles (EVs) in Korea, with 147,000 of these also being recalled in the U.S. The recall affects models like the Hyundai IONIQ 5, IONIQ 6, Genesis GV60, GV70, Electrified G80, and Kia EV6. The issue is a software glitch in the Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU) that could cause charging problems or a loss of power while driving (Electrek).

These recalls highlight the ongoing challenges and safety concerns faced by automakers, particularly with the increasing complexity of modern vehicles. As vehicles become more advanced, integrating sophisticated electronic systems and software, the potential for issues that can impact safety grows. For instance, the Toyota Prius recall due to electronic door latch failures demonstrates how water intrusion into electronic components can lead to unexpected and hazardous outcomes. Similarly, the Hyundai and Kia recall for software glitches in their EVs' charging control units underscores the critical role of reliable software in vehicle functionality and safety. These incidents reflect a broader trend where automakers must continually adapt to ensure the safety and reliability of their increasingly complex products.

On December 22, 2022, both Kia and Hyundai issued yet another engine recall, in which stated the engines were flawed. They would offer a free lifetime engine replacement warranty, however, these companies must have slipped a cog, because they will only honor this if the owner has completed the KSDS a/k/a Knock Sensor Detection System upgrade. Guess what folks? You’re not getting that new engine!
