Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors Corp. have announced plans to recall 1.3 million vehicles in the United States and South Korea for engine defects that could result in stalling. While no automaker wants to face the possibility of a recall, Hyundai Motor Group is already facing a sales slump in both North America and Asia.
Having to waste millions on a recall that further brings the company’s ability to regulate quality into question is the last thing it needs. Last month, Hyundai recalled roughly one million cars seat for a faulty fastener that occasionally caused seat belts to detach in a crash.

- Jeff Good to read a review on a car that many readers can afford and agree on as a solid choice.
- Ajla The V6 Accord was so popular with internet car website commenters that it turned into a meme. I don't think this current gen carries on that tradition though, many reviews make it sound like a regression. I think the Ford Maverick is the new internet sweetheart.Or the Kia Telluride, which is objectively the greatest ICE vehicle of all time.
- Statikboy It doesn't hold up to earlier generations. It's about about a 1000 pounds overweight.Also, when did the "economy" model of a vehicle become the most expensive version? I keep expecting "economy" to be "inexpensive". I know it was before EV's and even hybrids but I'm not sure when the status flipped. Maybe it started with VW's diesel Rabbit?No longer channeling my inner Old Man. I turned 50 last month so I'm channeling my outer Old Man. Get off the lawn I would have if I could afford my own property!!
- Danddd I'm reading on other sites that the last model was more fun to drive. Accords usually had a bit of sport fun tuned in. Has the new Accord dropped this entirely?I notice on the eighth pic down that space in the dash, seems odd.Now if there was just an Accord wagon....
- TheEndlessEnigma $150k for GM build quality. $150k for GM parts and material quality. Yeah, that's the ticket.
