The Basics: Hyundai and is Kia division have issued two recall notices, both for similar issues. The larger of the two affects 219,800 units of the 2006-2014 Kia Sedona minivan built between June 15, 2005, and April 04, 2014. The second relates to 81,000 examples of the 2016 Tucson crossover manufactured from May 19, 2015, to March 14, 2016.

The Problem: In both cases, the secondary hood latch may not properly secure the hood in place and keep it from opening while under way.

Injuries/Deaths: None reported.

The fix: Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch, or in the Sedona's case, maybe just clean and lubricate the latch, as needed. Both campaigns are set to begin next month.

If you own one: Make sure you don't accidentally release the primary hood latch while driving or the secondary latch may not do its job.
