    Nearly 480,000 vehicles will be recalled due to various defects, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said on Thursday.

    Nine foreign and domestic carmakers -- Audi, BMW, Ford, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Volvo, Hyundai and Kia -- will recall a combined 478,371 cars, mostly due to faulty parts.

    Some 189,974 units of Hyundai's Tucson SUV and Kia's Stinger sports car will be recalled due to a faulty hydraulic electronic control unit that can cause a fire.

    Mercedes-Benz will compensate the owners of some 29,769 units of its luxury E300 sedan instead of recalling them, after it was found that their fuel efficiency had been overstated.
