240 000 faulty cars recalled


SOUTH Korea’s Transport Ministry on Friday ordered the recall of 240 000 cars made by Hyundai and its sister firm Kia Motors after a whistleblo­wer warned of faulty parts. Twelve Hyundai and Kia models are affected, including the Sonata, Santa Fe, Elantra and the Hyundai Genesis. Both manufactur­ers said they accept the decision, as safety is always of paramount importance. The warning over possible faulty parts was passed to a government regulator by a Hyundai engineer. Only cars in South Korea are affected by the recall. – DPA
