    If you have any of these vehicles in your possession, consider parking them outside and away from structures.
    • 2014-2016 Kia Sportage

    • 2016-2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
    • 2017-2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

    Contamination in the antilock brake module may cause an electrical short, which increases the risk of fire whether the vehicles are parked or being driven.

    Park outside: Hyundai, Kia recall vehicles due to fire risk
    Recall: Your Hyundai or Kia May Spontaneously Combust, So Park It Outside

    Made me think of the guy I carpooled to high school with for a year, he had an early-70s Porsche 914 -- arguably the worst Porsches of all time (actually there probably isn't an argument). Nothing but the tach worked on the dashboard. No speedometer, no odometer, no gauges. He'd fill it up with gas every five days just to be safe, 'cause he had no idea.

    Up until last year I had a 2010 Elantra. One day I parked nose-out in a driveway on busy Route 1o in north Jersey to drop off something. A few seconds later I heard a crunching sound behind me. My Hyundai had slipped out of park and drifted across the two-lane road before stopping against the median. By the grace of a higher entity there was a break in traffic otherwise, who knows what could have happened. I hightailed it out of there, and the same thing happened a few days later in a parking lot, the car only moved a few inches before stopping against the parking barrier. I got rid of it within a week.
