NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Hyundai-Kia Motors is recalling more than 35,000 cars with fire-prone electrical wiring systems, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The government agency said Friday that the recall extends to some 2010-2011 Kia Soul and Kia Sorento models manufactured between Sept. 7 2009 and July 30, 2010.
"When lights are illuminated under certain conditions, an electrical short may occur that can result in a fire," said the recall notice.
The South Korean automaker said the faulty wiring is from the interior lighting in front and rear door trim panels, which are the plastic moldings on the inside of the car.
GM CEO Mary Barra announced that the automaker has created a new "global product integrity" unit to ensure that a" situation like the ignition-switch recall doesn't happen again." More
