The Ministry of Transport recalled 10 models from Hyundai Motor, SsangYong Motor, Mercedes-Benz Korea, Porsche Korea, Honda Korea and Hanbul Motors on July 2, demanding fixes to nearly 110,000 cars. 
SsangYong Motor’s two recalled models, including its Tivoli SUV, accounted for more than 80 percent of the recalls.
The ministry said some 88,664 Tivolis and Korando SUVs are prone to catching fire due to weak fuel hoses. The ministry said the weak fuel hoses could also cause fuel leakages.
The models in question will be fixed for free at SsangYong Motor service centers.  
Some 15,997 units of Hyundai Motor’s recently launched GV80 SUV were also recalled. It was the first recall for the Genesis-brand SUV, which started sales in January. The ministry said the model had fuel gauge display problems when parked on a hill. Hyundai Motor will offer free fixes at service centers from July 6.
Some 3,150 units from four trims in Mercedes-Benz Korea’s S-Class line — the S 560, S 560 4MATIC, Maybach S 560 and Maybach S 560 4MATIC — have been recalled for defect in the engine oil caps. Porsche Korea was ordered to recall 737 units of its Cayenne SUV model for weak transmission oil lines. 
Honda Korea will recall 608 units of its Accord sedan and Hanbul Motors, importer of French auto brands Peugeot and DS Automobile, will recall 56 units of the DS3 Crossback.
