Woman's Hyundai SUV catches fire, raises questions


The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

Jason Levine, the Executive Director of the Center for Auto Safety, a watchdog consumer non-profit, said while there is no current recall on the 2019 Tucson, this latest unexplained fire should be scrutinized.
“What we would like to see is the manufacturers, Hyundai and KIA and the National Highway Safety Administration do is more actively and more quickly get a handle on why these vehicles are continually catching fire,” said Levine.
