Nearly 150,000 Hyundai and Kia vehicles recalled in Canada

A potential failure of the stop lamp switch, which can cause intermittent operation of the brake lights, has led Kia Canada and Hyundai Canada to recall 39,054 and 110,104 vehicles, respectively.

If the brake lights don't work properly when the brake pedal is depressed, the risk of a collision increases. Therefore, Kia and Hyundai dealers will replace the switch.
