Hyundai and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on Tuesday announced a recall affecting several models due to a risk of engine fires.

One recall, listed on the NHTSA’s website, affects certain Santa Fe Sport SUVs ranging from 2013-2015, which in some cases have experienced issues with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).

The company is also urging drivers with the affected vehicles to park outside, and reported that the issue is a result from brake fluid leaking into the engine, which can possibly cause a fire due to an electrical short.
