Kia and Hyundai Vehicles Recalled for Defects

By Car Accident Help on April 8, 2013

Kia and Hyundai have issued a large-scale auto recall because of defective brake light switches and faulty airbags. According to a news report in the Atlanta-Journal-Constitution, 1.7 million vehicles from model years 2007 through 2011 are involved in this safety recall. The Kia vehicles involved in the recall include Sorento, Rondo, Sportage, Sedona, Soul, and Optima. The Hyundai models that are part of the recall include the Accent, Tucson, Elantra, Santa Fe, Veracruz, Genesis Coupe, and Sonata.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the faulty brake light switch can cause the brake lights to not turn on when the pedal is depressed. The defective switch may even prevent the cruise control from deactivating and can prevent the gear from shifting out of park. NHTSA warns that having brake lights that are not working properly can significantly increase the risk of a crash. No accidents have been reported as a result of this defective auto part, according to the automakers.

This is not the only auto recall that is currently underway involving Hyundai vehicles. The auto manufacturer is recalling approximately 194,000 Elantra compacts from model years 2011 to 2013, as well. This recall is related to an air bag issue.

If you or a loved one have been injured as the result of a defective auto product, it is crucial that you preserve the vehicle so it can be examined by an expert for defects, malfunctions, and other evidence. An experienced Oklahoma personal injury lawyer will be able to advise injured victims and their families regarding their legal rights and options.
