Next Monday is the Last Day to File a Claim in the Class Action Suit Against Kia and Hyundai for Defective Engines

If you’ve owned or leased any Hyundai or Kia vehicle with a Theta II 2.0-litre or 2.4-litre gasoline engine, you may be eligible for benefits


  • The class action involves vehicles with a gasoline turbocharged 2.0-litre or 2.4-litre engine.

  • The settlement was reached on March 25th.

  • The deadline to file a claim is Monday, July 19th.


If you have or do drive a vehicle with one of these engines and have experienced any issues related to them, then this does not apply to you. If you’ve suffered some form of financial loss due to engine problems in your Hyundai or Kia vehicle then read the following.

According to Protegez-Vous and the Automobile Protection Association, only if you’ve had to pay for engine repairs ahead of the warranty extension, sold your vehicle at a loss, or was informed that the vehicle was a write-off because of an engine failure, then the time to act is now.

The vehicle models implicated in this class action settlement are as follows:

  • 2011-2019 Hyundai Sonata

  • 2013-2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

  • 2014, 2015, or 2019 Hyundai Tucson

  • 2011-2019 Kia Optima

  • 2012-2019 Kia Sorento

  • 2011-2019 Kia Sportage

If you plan on filing a claim, make sure you have relevant invoices, bills, and other documents. You can file for your Hyundai vehicle here and for your Kia product here.

The July 19th deadline does not impact the ongoing recall from the automakers that involves the installation of a knock sensor.
