More than 500,000 Hyundai and Kia cars and minivans have been recalled in the U.S. for backward turn signals.
According to the Associated Press, the recalled vehicles are 2015-17 Hyundai Sonata’s, 2016-17 Sonata gas-electric hybrids, and 2015-17 Kia Sedona minivans.
According to the AP, the automakers claimed that the turn signal might be wrong due to software not correctly interpreting signals from a multifunction switch.
According to the AP there have been no reports of injuries or crashes.
The affected owners are asked to take their vehicles to the nearest dealer to have it repaired. This is free.
The AP reported that Hyundai should notify owners in a letter starting Nov. 19 and Kia owners beginning Nov. 12.
