May 13, 2022—Hyundai is recalling 215,000 vehicles over a hose issue and Mercedes-Benz is recalling over 292,000 models due to a braking problem.
According to MLive, the Hyundai recall affects some 2013 and 2014 Sonata Sedans. Many of these sedans were recalled in 2020 regarding the same issue.
Low-pressure fuel hoses in these vehicles can crack due to engine heat, and fuel may leak and cause an increased risk of fire.

According to Consumer Reports, the Mercedes-Benz recall impacts some GL-, ML- and R-Class SUVs from 2006 through 2012.
Prolonged water exposure can cause some braking components to become damaged. As a result, brakes may have reduced performance or could fail altogether.

Owners of vehicles involved in the recall will be notified starting on May 27.
