Vehicle recalls usually miss most of us, but this one actually applies to the car that I drive and possibly yours too. Turns out some Kia and Hyundai vehicles are being recalled due to a possible mis-repair issue during a previous engine recall.

The first recall took place in 2015 to prevent engine fires from occurring but now it appears as if some of those repairs were done incorrectly. Here are the cars covered in this latest recall:

The recall covers some 2011 through 2014 Kia Optima cars, 2012 through 2014 Sorrento SUVs, and 2011 through 2013 Sportage SUVs... Also covered are many 2011 to 2014 Hyundai Sonata cars and 2013 and 2014 Santa Fe Sport SUVs. More than 2 million 2011 Sonatas from the 2011 through 2018 model years and Santa Fe Sports from 2013 through 2018 are covered. About 1.7 million Kias including the 2011 through 2018 Optima, the 2012 through 2018 Sorento and 2011 through 18 Sportage are covered.

If you're wondering if your car qualifies, you will be notified by letter and again your car would've already been a part of the 2015 recall in the first place. Read more at
