A class action lawsuit was filed Thursday with Quebec Superior Court in connection with the recall of more than 603,000 Hyundai and Kia brand vehicles due to a fire hazard.
According to the request from law firms LPC Avocats and Ticket911.ca, members of the group want to receive “financial compensation due to the security flaw.”
According to the lawsuit, repairs will not be made “for several months,” which would constitute a violation of the Consumer Protection Law.
On Wednesday, the two South Korean automakers announced the recall of 326,942 Hyundai vehicles and 276,225 Kia vehicles in Canada.
According to the warning, the anti-lock braking system (ABS) can leak brake fluid, which could cause a short circuit over time.
In the face of the risk of fire, both brands are urging drivers to park their cars away from buildings.
