Kona electric battery
« on: March 24, 2021, 22:19:19 »
Does anyone know if and when hyundai will be recalling Kona electric cars for battery replacements
having read the news stories looks like all built till march 2020 despite a software upgrade are a fire risk and a recall/battery change is needed
contacted my delaer who simply said no recall on my vehicle and didnt know about this
concerned re reported fire risk and that arent supposed to charge beyond 90%

Judging by this report they are certainly not handling the situation well..I would recommend you print off what you find on line and stuff it under the nose of your dealer to drive the point home..

My dealer simply said my car had already received all of the required updates.
I thanked them for confirming that my car was not a fire risk - they didn't respond to that. ???
Read into that what you will   :-\
