NBC News: Hyundai, Kia owners should park outside because vehicles can catch fire, makers warn

Hyundai and Kia are telling the owners of nearly 485,000 vehicles in the U.S. to park them outdoors because they can catch fire even if the engines have been turned off.

This time the problem is contamination in the antilock brake control module that can cause an electrical short. This increases the risk of fire while the vehicles are being driven or are parked.

The automakers say they have 11 reports of fires in the U.S. but no injuries.

This is unbelievable! The car can allegedly catch on fire even if the engine is off? Sheeeesh

I've only owned Toyota, Honda and Acura. My favorite is Lexus, but never got around to owning one.  :P

I kind of like the new Ford Maverick hybrid truck, but need to wait a bit for owner reviews.

Try finding one. I've only got to sit in one, wouldn't let me drive it because someone was buying it. :(

And the markups are redic.
