Kia Owners - 2019 Kia Stingers Recalled For Safety Reasons

Lots of folks purchase Kia cars, trucks, and SUVs. Those vehicles are typically reliable and serve drivers well for years. The brand has many affordable options that draw consumers in. After all, nobody wants to break the bank just to get a new set of wheels. Plus, various Kia models have high safety ratings, which people want in order to ensure that drivers and passengers alike remain safe and secure out on the open road. 

This is not a car commercial, though. We are not telling purchasers to run right out and buy vehicles from Kia, unless that is what they want to do. Instead, we are going to discuss more dire circumstances that could leave car owners injured. Hence, curious individuals should stick around and read on to learn more.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 20V518000

Kia Motors of America is expected to begin recalling specific 2019 Stinger vehicles on October 26, 2020. The units in question come equipped with 3.3L T-GDI engines. So if your Stinger has a different motor, you might be safe. Still, it is a good idea to reach out to the company just to be sure. There are potentially 9,443 cars involved in this recall, which is a high number. Plenty of them could even be located right in your own neighborhood.

Those vehicles are dangerous because an engine compartment fire might start while they are being driven. If flames erupt, they will be near the location of the Anti-Lock Brake Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit. Drivers and passengers can sustain severe burns in such an event. They may even lose their lives if they are unable to escape the engulfed cars.

Although Kia is getting ready to issue a recall for those vehicles, there is no remedy as of yet. It is still under development. Therefore, it is in the owners' best interest to keep their rides parked, at least for now. With any luck, doing so will help them avoid catastrophes. 

What If You Get Hurt Because Of This Problem?

Manufacturer's liability holds sellers and manufacturers responsible for the damages that their products cause. In other words, victims can seek compensation from the companies. There is a catch when it comes to recalls, though. Injured parties must prove that they did not have prior knowledge of the situation. Contact our office for a free case review and discover where your claim stands.

If everything is valid, we would be more than happy to represent you. It is never a good idea to go against a manufacturer alone. Corporations usually have legal teams standing by to nip injury claims in the bud. Those professionals take advantage of people, and they do not care about what happens to you. Their primary concern is to stop clients from shelling out significant compensation amounts. Sometimes, they offer low settlements, which simply are not enough to cover victims' recovery costs.

On other occasions, the attorney and manufacturers deny injury claims outright. Thus, they refuse to pay out even a single penny. Don't get stuck with a mountain of debt for ailments that were no fault of your own. Friendly, professional, and trustworthy representation is only a phone call away. Give us a call, and we will do our best to make sure you get the money you deserve.

Compensation amounts vary from one case to the next. Various factors determine the total, such as current and future lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. So please do not delay any longer. Instead, hire a reputable firm and allow them to fight on your behalf. Thousands or even millions of dollars could be waiting for you.
