What Kia Owners Don't Talk About

Nearly 485,000 vehicles in the U.S. are owned by Hyundai and Kia, and they are warning

their owners not to leave them in open areas because they might catch fire even with the engine off.

Somehow, during the past ten or so years, fire hazards in Kia vehicles have grown.

This may be related to the fact that Kia vehicles are going more toward the design of hybrids and electric vehicles (EVs).

Remember that Kia's warranties for its hybrid and electric vehicles are far from as impressive as those for its regular gas-powered vehicles.

All Hyundai and Kia cars manufactured after November 1, 2021 come standard without an engine immobiliser,

making many models for 2022 and all models for the following year theft-proof.

Rapid City - Since last summer, fewer Kia and Hyundai automobiles have been stolen,

according to Grand Rapids police chief Eric Wynstrom, but owners shouldn't let their security down completely.
