About 16,500 2013 Hyundai Veloster coupes are subject to a new recall over concerns that their turbocharged engines could stall or even catch fire.

Details of the recall were released last week by the NHTSA.

The recall specifically surrounds 2013 Veloster models equipped with the 1.6-liter turbo-4 engine, which was exclusive to the Veloster Turbo model. In total, Hyundai estimates 16,487 vehicles are affected and may be prone to stalling and house the potential of an engine fire.
