Tesla Korea, Hyundai Motor and four other carmakers will recall over 72,000 vehicles owing to faulty components, South Korea's transportation ministry said on Thursday.

The six companies, including Ford Sales & Service Korea, Nissan Korea, Kia Corp. and Honda Korea, are voluntarily recalling a total of 72,674 units of 13 different models, according to the ministry.

The problems that prompted the recall include a software error in the auto pilot system of some 63,991 Tesla units, including the Model Y, reports Yonhap news agency.

Some 1,990 units of the company's Model X were found to have problems with the door lock mechanism in case of collision.

Some 2,400 units of Hyundai models, including the G80, were found to have faulty components in the drive shaft of the rear wheel, which could prompt the vehicles to stop while driving.

The ministry said 2,156 units of Ford's Mustang models failed to properly issue warnings in cases of brake oil depletion. Around 1,100 units of Nissan models, including the Altima 2.0, were discovered to be having faulty rear-view camera units.

Also, 922 Kia Seltos compact sport utility vehicles were subject to recall owing to faulty parts in the air bag system, while 49 Honda Odyssey minivan units were discovered with faulty engine parts.
