Massive Recall of Hyundai and Kia Vehicles over Fire Risk

On Behalf of | Mar 28, 2023 | (client-fulfilled) Personal Injury

Owners of certain Hyundai and Kia vehicles in New Jersey are being told to park them outside because they could catch fire.

The Korean automakers have recalled 571,000 SUVs and minivans because the tow hitch harnesses could catch fire if water gets into the circuit board and causes a short.

It could happen while the vehicles are being driven or while parked. If it happened while the vehicle was in a garage, it could cause the whole house to catch fire.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says the effected models include:
– Santa Fe model years 2019 – 2023
– Santa Fe Hybrid model years 2021 – 2023
– Santa Fe Plug-in hybrid model year 2023
– Santa Cruz model years 2022 – 2023
– Carnival minivan model years 2022 – 2023
If you or a loved one suffered injuries as a result of driving these, or any, faulty vehicles, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more, contact the experienced product liability lawyers at Breslin and Breslin today.
