Korean automaker Hyundai and affiliate Kia are coming under scrutiny over how they handled the recall of nearly 1.7 million vehicles. According to Reuters, U.S. safety regulators have opened a formal investigation into the recall by Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motor Corporation over engine defects. A South Korean whistleblower reported concerns last year to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NHTSA will probe the timeliness of three recalls carried out in the United States–and whether they covered enough vehicles. Fines could be imposed on the automakers if NHTSA determines the recalls were not conducted properly. A Hyundai spokesman in Seoul says the company will “sincerely” cooperate with the investigation.
