Hyundai, Kia & Subaru issue recalls

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Hyundai and Kia are calling nearly two-million vehicles to fix problems with air bags and brake light switches.
The brake light recall covers Hyundai models like the Accent, Elantra and Sonata from 2007 to 2011.
U.S. safety regulators say a faulty switch can stop the brake lights from illuminating when drivers press the pedal.
Also, the cruise control may not turn off when a drive steps on the brake.
Hyundais is also recalling the 2011 through 2013 Elantra. A bracket can come loose when the side air bag inflates and can injure people.
The automakers will notify owners and replace the switches for free starting in June.
Subaru is recalling about 200,000 vehicles over a brake issue.
Subaru says the brake lines may corrode if salt water splashes on them through a gap in the fuel tank protector, which makes it hard to stop.
Subaru says no accidents have been reported, it was just being "super conservative" and proactive.
The company plans to notify owners and will fix the problem at dealerships for free.
