PHOENIX -- 3 On Your Side has a consumer warning for people who drive a Hyundai, Kia or Subaru.

Korean automakers of the Hyundai and Kia are recalling nearly 1,900,000 vehicles to fix problems with air bags and brake light switches.
   
The recall affects nearly all Kia and Hyundai vehicles made between 2007 and 2011.
   
A faulty brake switch can stop the brake lights from illuminating when they press on the pedal.
   
Also, the cruise control may not turn off when you press on the brake, so you'll want to have that brake switch checked out and replaced.
   
Also, if you have a 2011 through 2013 Hyundai Elantra, you might want to call your dealer about a possible air bag problem because 194,000 Elantras are being recalled.
   
And finally, Subaru has it's own recall going on.
   
Two hundred thousand of its Legacy and Outback vehicles from 2005 through 2009 are being recalled because of a problem with brake lines. Apparently, the brake lines may corrode making it difficult to stop.
   
The good news, no accidents have been reported because of the problem but Subaru is being ultra conservative.
