Multiple news agencies have reported recently that over 1.9 million cars are being recalled by Hyundai and Kia.
The reports show that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has indicated that almost 1.7 million cars were recalled due to an issue with a faulty switch that could keep the brake lights from being illuminated once the driver presses the brake pedal. Another issue has prompted a recall for 194,000 units of Elantra compacts, which have been fitted with support brackets that could come loose as soon as the air bags are inflated. One accident involving an Elantra vehicle led the brackets to come loose, which reportedly resulted in lacerations to a driver’s ear, news agencies stated.
Models affected by this major recall include all units of the 2007 through 2009 Accent and Tucson, the 2007 through 2010 Elantra, 2007 through 2011 Santa Fe, 2008 and 2009 Veracruz, 2011 Sonata, 2010 and 2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007 through 2010 Rondo and Sportage, 2011 Optima, 2010 and 2011 Soul, 2007 through 2011 Sorento, and the 2007 Sedona. All units of the 2011 through 2013 models of the Elantra vehicle have been affected by the air bag recall.
