What Kia Owners Don't Talk About

Hyundai and Kia are telling owners of almost 485,000 vehicles across the U.S. almost 485,000 vehicles across the U.S.

that you should not leave them in open spaces, as it is possible for them to ignite, even with engine turned off.

Perhaps this is due to the fact that Kia cars are moving more toward the design of hybrids and electric vehicles (EVs), but somehow,

fire risks in Kias have increased in the past decade or so.

Keep in mind, Kias warranties offered on its Kia EVs and hybrids are nowhere near as glowing as the warranties offered on its conventional gas-powered cars.

All Hyundai and Kia vehicles after Nov. 1, 2021, are equipped standard without an engine immobilizer,

so a lot of the 2022 models, and all of the units for next year, are theft-proof.

Grand Rapids - The thefts of Kia and Hyundai vehicles have subsided somewhat since this summer,

Grand Rapids police Chief Eric Wynstrom said, but a recent case shows that vehicle owners should not let their guard down entirely.
