Transcript for Hyundai and Kia recall vehicles over fire concerns
- Now to the enormous recall of Hyundai and Kia vehicles and the warning about parking them in your garage. Trevor Ault is here with the details on that. Trevor, some serious concerns here.
- Absolutely. I mean, we're talking about nearly 600,000 vehicles here. This is a massive recall. Hyundai Motor America and Kia America are warning that recent Santa Fe, Santa Cruz, and Carnival models could catch fire if there's an electrical short. And they're telling these owners, even if your car's turned off, you should park them outside away from your home, away from buildings, even away from other cars until you can get this fixed.
The issue is with a faulty tow hitch assembly. The company say that the owners should contact their dealers to schedule a repair. That repair will be done for free. You can check with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, either on their website or over the phone. Use your Vehicle Identification Number to see if yours is one that's being recalled and if it is, you obviously want to get this fixed as soon as possible. Michael.
- Yes, you do. Thank you so much.
