SEOUL, June 22 (Yonhap) -- Hyundai Motor Co., South Korea's top automaker, and six imported carmakers have been ordered to recall more than 400,000 vehicles in South Korea for faulty parts, the transport ministry said Thursday.

This is the latest in a series of recall orders issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport against both domestic and foreign carmakers.

The carmakers plan to recall 38 different models totaling 403,128 units. The subjected models include Hyundai Motor's Santa Fe and MaxCruze SUV, Maserati's Ghibli diesel sedan, and Ford Motor Co.'s Focus and Lincoln MKS sedan, the ministry said in a statement.

The problems range from a faulty cable attached to the engine room hood to airbags which fail to inflate enough in case of an accident, it said.

Starting Friday, vehicle owners can visit designated repair and service centers to replace the parts free of charge, it said.
