Safety Regulators Are Investigating Hyundai’s Handling of Theta II Recalls

Federal investigators are taking a look at Hyundai’s handling of Theta II engine recalls to make sure there’s no funny business going on.

NHTSA says it took action to “investigate both the timeliness and scope of Hyundai’s Theta II engine recalls, and Hyundai’s compliance with reporting requirements.”

Timely and compliant? Not if you ask this lawsuit. Or this former Hyundai engineer.

To date, nearly 1.7 million Hyundai and Kia vehicles have been recalled.
