INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis man is lucky to be alive after his car burst into flames on Interstate 65.

Now, he wonders why his car was not recalled when hundreds of thousands of others across the U.S. were recalled for this exact problem.

The incident with David Hollis's 2014 Kia Soul happened last December. A recall was announced earlier this year that covered the Kia Soul, although Hollis's model was not covered. Even though people with the same model have reported their cars also bursting into flames.

The same model of Hollis's car is also part of a class action lawsuit against Kia. But still, the current recall doesn't cover his particular model.

Call 6 Investigates contacted the automaker, who said they had provided Hollis with alternative transportation at no cost while the investigation continues.
