Oct. 4, 2021—Hyundai and Kia are recalling more than 550,000 cars and minivans in the U.S. due to a turn signal issue.

According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, an issue with 2015-2017 Hyundai Sonatas and 2015-2017 Kia Sedonas can cause the blinker to flash in the opposite director as the driver intends.

Hyundai says the issue may be caused by software in a junction box improperly interpreting signals. No known crashes or injuries have occurred as a result of the defect. 

Kia owners will begin receiving notification letters for repair starting Nov. 12, with Hyundai owners receiving theirs starting Nov. 19.
