In the USA, the South Korean car manufacturers Hyundai and Kia are recalling models due to faulty indicators.
Looking at a current recall in the USA, many drivers will think: "Now I understand a lot!" The South Korean car manufacturers Hyundai and Kia are recalling a total of 554,685 vehicles because their indicators could be faulty. To be more precise, and now it's almost funny, the affected models could have the right turn signal activated instead of the left and vice versa - which could not only lead to misunderstandings but also to serious accidents.
Explicitly there are 466,109 Hyundais and 88,576 Kias. In the case of the latter, the Sedona model from the production period July 21, 2014 to June 10, 2016 is affected - we also don't know why it has only now been noticed. The Hyundai models Sonata (432,981 copies /production period: May 2, 2014 to August 17, 2016), Sonata Hybrid (30,684 E. /PZ: December 15, 2014 to May 15, 2017) and Sonata Plug-in are about similar periods -Hybrid (2,444 E. /PZ: December 22, 2014 to May 3, 2017). The recall begins mid-November and can be found at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under numbers 21V-749 (Hyundai) and 21V-725 (Kia). The NHTSA estimates that only one percent of potentially affected vehicles actually have this turn signal error. With a total of 554,685 vehicles, this would still be a large number of false indicators (5,547 vehicles).,
On over half a million Kia and Hyundai vehicles in the US, the wrong turn signal can start flashing. The recall will officially start in mid-November. Until then, it could mean in the USA: Be careful if the models in question flash in front of you in traffic.
