The front half of a Hyundai Santa Fe Sport engulfed in flames

Looks like last year's recall to stop Santa Fe ABS fires didn't stop all the ABS fires. A total of 18 SUVs have now caught on fire after internal brake fluid leaks shorted out the ABS module. Hyundai hopes swapping out internal valve seals and lowering the system's amperage can finally put an end to this issue.
