Louisiana Drivers, Millions of Kia and Hyundai Vehicles Being Recalled
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says Hyundai and Kia car companies are recalling some 3.3 million vehicles.
It's all about the risk of fire.
The biggest thing to note in their report is that the car companies are actually asking owners if they have these vehicles not to park them near their homes like in the garage or carport.
The actual request is a "park outside" recall. The fires they are worried about can happen whether you are driving the vehicles or if they are parked.
The 1.6 million vehicles being recalled by Hyundai are the following:
2013-2015 Elantra Coupe
2011-2015 Genesis Coupe
2013-2015 Santa Fe
2013 Santa Fe Sport
2011-2015 Sonata HEV
2015 Tucson Fuel Cell
The 1.7 million vehicles being recalled by Kia are the following:
2011-2013 Forte/Forte Koup
2011-2013 Optima Hybrid
