Hyundai Is Burning Up The Road

While I have never owned a Hyundai vehicle, I have always heard good things. Apparently the warranty is excellent and the people I know who own a Hyundai are very happy with them. Until they catch fire.

Hyundai is adding about 471,000 SUVs to a September U.S. recall for an electrical short in a computer that could cause fires. And the company is warning owners to park the SUVs outdoors until they are repaired.

Wait a minute, I thought South Korea was our friends?

The latest recall covers certain model-year 2016 through 2018, and additional 2020 through 2021, Hyundai Tucson SUVs. The vehicles have antilock brake system computers that can malfunction internally and cause an electrical short. That can lead to a fire.

Hyundai said Friday that the recall comes as part of a continuing investigation into the problem. The company said it’s aware of a dozen fires but no injuries related to the recalled vehicles.

Okay, let’s begin:

With Hyundai’s low prices, you better get them while they’re hot!

No need to add flames to the hood; they come with the package.

The ten-year warranty ensures you won’t get burned.
