10 biggest news stories of the week: hyundai palisade, kia telluride keep mustang mach-e in tow

If you’re reading this right now and you own a model-year 2020-22 Hyundai Palisade or Kia Telluride, you’re going to want to read one of Cars.com’s most popular news stories of the past week — and then you’re going to want to move your SUV out of the garage and away from the house. More than 281,000 of the parent-company cousin SUVs are currently under a federal safety recall for a fire-prone tow hitch harness.

Vehicles equipped with the faulty tow hitch harness module’s circuitry could catch fire and cause injury if debris and moisture build up on the part and cause an electrical short, which can happen regardless of whether the vehicle is running. Fortunately, no fires, crashes or injuries have yet been reported in the U.S. — then again, neither has a remedy for the recall issue been determined. In the meantime, the automaker has issued a stop-sale order on the affected population, instructed dealers to remove the tow hitch module fuse and urged owners to park outside and away from structures until a permanent fix is announced.

For the full details on the recall of 2020-22 Hyundai Palisades and Kia Tellurides — including how to determine whether your particular SUV is impacted and how to contact the automaker with questions — follow the link below to Cars.com’s No. 4 news story of the week.

Riding that recall’s trailer hitch on our weekly countdown is a report on the return of the Ford Mustang Mach-E for the 2023 model year after supply-chain shortages previously forced the automaker to halt ordering for the outgoing model. Ordering reopened on Aug. 30, though would-be buyers may find themselves needing to readjust their financing plan, as starting prices are way up across the lineup by $3,200 to $11,000. In addition to upward movement in pricing, the driving range of the all-electric SUV’s Premium trim also goes up (when equipped with the extended-range 91-kilowatt-hour battery pack) by nearly 5% to 290 miles.

For everything we know about the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E, follow the link below to this week’s No. 7 news story.
