[VIDEO] Brand new Hyundai Tucson mysteriously goes up in flames in Rawalpindi
As of yet, the Hyundai Nishat Motors in Pakistan has not commented on the incident.
RAWALPINDI: A brand new Hyundai Tucson was seen inexplicably catching fire in a video that has now gone viral. The incident took place close to Rawalpindi’s Bahria Town.
The video has left viewers confused, as it was a new Tucson model that was released in August of 2020. There does not seem to be any particular cause for fire either, as is with other vehicles that catch fire due to accidents or the owner’s negligence.
You can see the viral video below:
Earlier in January, Hyundai had recalled over 470,000 Tucson SUVs in the US with a warning to owners to keep their cars parked until they are fixed.
Under the recall, certain model year 2016 to 2018, and 2020 to 2021 are covered.
As per sources, Tucson’s Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) computer malfunctions on the inside and is behind the fires. Hyundai requested owners to consult with their dealers and get the fuse on their ABS computer fixed.
Prior to this, Hyundai had to recall 180,000 Tucson SUVs to tackle this same issue in September last year.
As of yet, the Hyundai Nishat Motors in Pakistan has not commented on the incident. However, it is hoped that the company would look into the matter and offer an explanation.
There could be multiple reasons behind the fire, but without Hyundai’s statement, it cannot be said for certain that the incident was the company’s error.
