The head of South Korea’s second-largest automaker, Kia Motors, has resigned to take responsibility for the recall of tens of thousands of cars because of faulty wiring.

Company spokesman Michael Choo told reporters Tuesday that Chung Sung-eun, vice chairman and CEO of Kia, had stepped down Friday. Choo said no successor has been named.

Early this month, Kia issued a global recall of at last 85,900 vehicles. Kia’s China operations were also part of the recall.

Kia is an affiliate of South Korea’s top automaker, Hyundai Motors. Together they form the world’s fifth-largest automotive group.

South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that Chung was fired by group chairman Chung Mong-Koo, but the companies did not confirm the report
