Hyundai, Kia to issue global recall to fix brake light switch

Hyundai Motor Co has announced it will take "global action" with its affiliate Kia Motors Corp to fix a potentially faulty brake light switch, after they said they planned to recall almost 1.9 million cars in the US, Reuters has reported. The decision may mean the world's fifth-biggest automaker would end up recalling even more vehicles than that number, Hyundai's US record, and is a warning that it may have sacrificed quality standards for rapid expansion. "Hyundai has built factories very fast around the globe until recent years, but its quality improvement has failed to keep up with its rapid volume growth," said Kim Phill-soo, a professor at Department of Automotive Engineering at Daelim University College in Seoul. "The latest recall highlighted loopholes in Hyundai's quality system."
