Recall Alert!

Hyundai and Kia are the latest car manufacturers to issue a recall. According to the automotive distributors 205,000 plus 2008-2010 Hyundai Elantra & Elantra Tours are being recalled for steering problems along 12,000 plus 2016 Kia Sorentos for throttle problems.

"Don't be hesitant about bringing the car into the drive because we would rather see the car," said Antwine.

Tommy Antwine of Patterson Service Center in Wichita Falls said that concerned drivers can take their models into the center to have them inspected.

"We can check for recall by the VIN, it may be on this VIN and not this VIN number due to build date. It checks for any other recalls that might be open and anything else that might be wrong with your car that we could physically see at the time of inspection," said Antwine.

According to Antwine and Patterson Hyundai no recall has been issued. They did admit that at times the distributor release the information on the web before notifying the dealer. Still Antwine said that the service center would be able to identify if a car brought in would or would not be impacted by a recall.

"If they had announced it by VIN number it's on their website and the dealer website which is where we would go to find it yes we could identify," said Antwine.

As of now both Hyundai and Kia have not said how they plan to fix or reimburse customers impacted by the recall.
