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