Recall: Faulty Computer May Lead to Engine Fires in Select Hyundai Cars

Hyundai is recalling 430,000 small cars. Water can get into the anti-lock brake computer and could possibly lead to an engine fire.

The recall covers certain 2006 through 2011 Elantra and 2007 through 2011 Elantra Touring models.

The company says this issue can cause a fire even when the cars are turned off. Hyundai has three reports of fires thus far and no related injuries.

Dealers will begin repairing the faulty program on April 3.
