Dangerous defects: 2.5 million U.S. cars and trucks with unfixed recalls

A new warning from Carfax about potentially dangerous vehicles kicks off the summer driving season. There are 2.5 million urgent recalls on vehicles that aren't yet fixed. Of those, 237,000 are registered in Florida, making it the 3rd highest state in number of vehicles that contain warnings to not drive the vehicle or to park it away from buildings. The alert involved 200 different models. Christine McGuire Wolfe drove one of those recalled vehicles. The then firefighter narrowly escaped her Kia SUV after it burst into flames with her behind the wheel.
