South Korean prosecutors on Wednesday raided the office of Hyundai Motor’s quality division located in southern Seoul as part of an investigation into how the automaker and affiliate Kia Motors managed vehicle recalls over engine defects, Chosun Biz reported.

In 2017, South Korean civic group YMCA submitted a complaint with prosecutors accusing the automakers delayed fixing engine problems that prompted massive recalls in Korea and the United States. Hyundai and Kia have rejected the allegations.

Hyundai and the prosecutor’s office did not have immediate comment.

The automakers are also being probed by U.S. safety regulators and prosecutors concerning the recall of almost 1.7 million vehicles related to engine problems in the United States.
