Hyundai and Kia Recall 9,500 SUVs for Brake Problem
The defect is caused by improperly machined rear brake calipers that may allow fluid to leak. The loss would trigger a warning light and result in spongy brake-pedal feel, increasing the risk of a crash, according to a notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
As part of the recall, dealers will inspect the rear calipers and replace them if necessary at no cost to vehicle owners.
Owners of affected vehicles will begin receiving notices this month, NHTSA said.
