“Until these recalled vehicles have been repaired, the manufacturers say the safest place to park them is outside and away from homes and other structures,” said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The concern is that fires can break out in the vehicle regardless of whether it's parked and switched off or in motion.
