McKenzie Lake Lawyers is working cooperatively with Garcha & Company on behalf of all persons who purchased or leased certain Hyundai and Kia vehicles that allegedly contain a defective Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit (“HECU”) in the Anti-Lock Brake System (“ABS”), located in the engine compartment, that can short circuit and ignite, presenting consumers with an unacceptable risk of engine fire while driving or even when the vehicle is parked and turned off. Specifically, moisture, or other leaks, can accumulate within the HECU (also known as the ABS control module), which maintains an electrical charge even when the vehicle is off. Moisture, or other leaks, entering the electrified ABS control module can form a short circuit, increasing the chances of spontaneous fire eruption in the vehicle’s engine compartment (the “Electrical Fire Defect”).
