Hyundai has recalled the 2013 Veloster over concerns about the ECU software.

According to the company, the software installed on the ECU could cause premature ignition and make the engine stall. The issue also creates a risk of fire.

If the engine stalls at high speed there's an increased risk of crash or a fire, putting drivers and other road users in danger.

A total of 5171 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Hyundai Australia will contact the owners of affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealership. The original recall notice is attached here.
