Weekdays 3:00pm - 8:00pm
Korean automakers Hyundai and Kia are initiating a recall of nearly 92,000 vehicles. If you currently drive a Hyundai or Kia automobile be aware that there is an engine part that could overheat and catch on fire. If you don’t drive one, great. But, you probably know someone who does, so make sure they get this information.
Basically, there is an engine part called the “Idle Stop And Go” oil pump which can overheat and catch on fire. As a matter of fact, Hyundai and Kia are urging owners of certain models to park their vehicles outdoors and away from structures that could erupt in flames. That’s according to an article by David Shepardson on Reuters.com.
Specifically, the models that Hyundai is recalling include 2023-2024 Palisades, and the 2023 Tuscon, Sonata, Elantra, and Kona. In addition, Kia plans to recall the 2023-2024 Seltos, plus the 2023 Soul and Sportage. Per Shepardson’s article, Hyundai is talking about recalling approximately 52,000 vehicles, and Kia, nearly 40,000.
In either case, owners of these models will be officially notified in late September. Hyundai and Kia dealerships will “inspect and replace the electric oil pump controller as needed.”
In the meantime, if you smell a burning or melting odor emanating from your Hyundai, the company is recommending you have it towed to the nearest Hyundai dealer for repairs. Generally, you should not attempt to keep driving your car. According to Hyundai, overheating and possible engine fires are not the only worry. But, overheating could also “could trigger a short-circuit impacting other onboard vehicle controllers.”
In addition, if you don’t feel safe driving your Hyundai up for this recall, there is a plan. In fact, dealers have been instructed by the company to provide a rental car until the recall fix is available.
Let’s face it, we spend a lot of time in our cars. Whether you are driving to work, taking the kids to practice, or heading out on a summer road trip, it’s important to be safe and comfortable inside your vehicle. Therefore, we have put together the best car accessories that’ll have you driving in style.
Car accessories actually have a lot of different categories. What ranks the highest is completely up to you, there’s no wrong answer. Cleanliness is always a good one, however. You don’t want to pull up to your friend’s or date’s house with those coffee stains all over the seats. Even worse, the gym gear from last week that you left in the back seat might be fogging up the windows.
These days, there are items for your car that can take care of everything. Whether you need shade, a charger, a phone holder, extra cup space, or a mini vacuum, you can find it. If you want your car to match your personality and be an extension of your creativity, well, there are items for that, as well.
Car accessories come in all shapes and sizes, just like cars do. You may have more room in a seven-passenger SUV, but a small sedan can still accommodate many of the great items to make your drive customized to your liking.
Finally, safety is always of the utmost importance. We are not going to recommend a car product that’s going to take your eyes off the road. There is no console here that will allow you to drive upside down either. On the contrary, maybe some of these rad accessories will make your cruising more enjoyable. We want your car to be awesome and stylish as you are.
Without further ado, here are the best car accessories that’ll have you driving in style.
