HMG, Ford EVs recalled in US

Software updates required.

By Graeme Roberts

Hyundai Motor Group brands in the US and Ford are recalling three EVs for safety related software updates.

Hyundai Motor America is recalling 10,729 2022 Ioniq 5 vehicles. A software error in the Shifter Control Unit (SCU) may disengage the parking mechanism, which can allow the vehicle to roll away.

Drivers are recommended to use the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) when parking their vehicles until the remedy has been performed.

Dealers will update the Shifter Control Unit software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on 10 July, 2022.

Meanwhile, Kia Motor America (Kia) is recalling 9,014 2022 EV6 vehicles for the same reason.

An NHTSA recall notice said drivers were recommended to park their vehicles on level ground and avoid parking on a slope/inclined surface whenever possible until the remedy had been performed.

Dealers will update the Shifter Control Unit software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on 25 May, 2022.

Kia is also recalling 2,761 2022 Telluride SUVs because excess adhesive in a circuit board within the instrument cluster may cause the cluster display screen to be blank.

Dealers will replace the instrument cluster assembly, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to go out on 15 July, 2022.

Ford is recalling just 464 2021 Mustang Mach-E vehicles equipped with all wheel drive. The powertrain control module (PCM) functional safety software may fail to detect a software error, resulting in unintended acceleration, unintended deceleration, or a loss of drive power.

The PCM software will be updated by a dealer, or through an over the air (OTA) update, free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on 30 May, 2022.
