Auto Safety Group Demands Mass Kia And Hyundai Recall Over Vehicle Fires

The Center for Auto Safety, a nonprofit auto safety group, is demanding a recall of 2.9 million Hyundai and Kia cars and SUVs due to widespread reports of the vehicles catching fire.

In a statement on Friday, the group said there had been more than 220 complaints about fires since 2010, and 200 more complaints about melted wires and smoke, the AP reported. The affected vehicles include the 2011-’14 Kia Sorento, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, and Hyundai Santa Fe, and the 2010-’15 Kia Soul models.

“Since our call for an investigation into these Kia and Hyundai non-collision fires, we have seen reports of almost one fire every single day across these five models,” Jason Levine, the executive director of the Center for Auto Safety said in a statement. “The number and severity of these complaints, when people are simply driving their cars on the highway, is frightening. It is long past time for Kia and Hyundai to act. Car fires put everyone on the road in significant danger.”

The fires are being investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as part of an expanded examination of Hyundai and Kia engine failures.

Calls for new regulation mount as limo crash victims mourned

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) — The day after a mourning community said last goodbyes to eight of 20 victims of a limousine crash — four sisters and four other relatives — the Senate's top Democrat called on federal regulators to formulate new safety standards for the vehicles.

Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday pointed to glaring gaps in safety data and singled out the National Transportation Safety Board, which he said hasn't thoroughly investigated a limousine crash in three years.

His criticism comes a week after the stretch limo loaded with 18 people on their way to a birthday party for one of the occupants ran a stop sign and crashed at the bottom of a hill in the town of Schoharie. Everyone in the limo died, including the four sisters, along with two pedestrians.

"The sad fact here is that right now everyone is talking about limo safety when we could have been studying it for the past few years," Schumer said. "The NTSB knows they need to fix this situation so we can have as much information as possible available."

At a news conference, he called on the NTSB to investigate every stretch limo crash that has occurred in the U.S. and use the data to make recommendations for safety standards that would then have to be implemented by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
