Hyundai and Kia are expected to recall nearly 1.5 million vehicles due to an engine defect that could cause the vehicles to stall, Reuters reported. 

The recall involves Hyundai’s Sonata and Santa Fe and Kia’s Optima, Sorento and Sportage in the United States and South Korea.

The duo said they are also recalling more than 171,000 vehicles in South Korea due to a similar manufacturing problem, which leads to possible stalling of its Theta 2 engine.

The recall could cost the two companies hundreds of millions of dollar each.
