Hundreds of cars have been recalled by Kia, Hyundai and BMW due to various faulty parts.

Recently Hyundai and Kia recalled hundreds of vehicles and issued a notice to recall the vehicles as well. The recall was made due to problems that arose in the hoods of two models of cars. The recalled car models included Kia Sedona and a Tuscan.

According to the complaints, the hood latch of these cars was not properly secure and was not able to keep it from opening. Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch in Sedona and Tuscan’s case.

A total of 219,800 units were called of Kia Sedona by the company, according to AutoBlog. Sedona is a minivan and the models that were released from June 2005 to April 2014 are included in this recall. The second recall was made of Tuscan which is a crossover and was manufactured from May 2015 to March 2016. A total of 81,000 Tuscans were also recalled. 

Another car recalled is BMW X3. All the X3 models that were sold from the year 2011 to 2016 recalled by BMW. The problem that arose in this model was faulty Isofix Child-Restraint Anchors, according to Edmunds

A total of 188,668 vehicles were recalled in this announcement. This problem was highlighted by Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration after several complaints.

The problem arose in these vehicles due to a lower anchor bar that was present for securing a child restraint seat.

Although no fatalities or injuries were reported nor BMW is aware of any. However BMW is going to fix this problem by adjusting or installing new anchor bars in the cars.
