It appears as though the Daily Drive-Thru has come to the proverbial end of the road. What began as the Daily News Autos’ daily roundup of the latest news from around the automotive world conceived two years ago has since morphed into a roundup of the day’s latest news, reviews, galleries and video stories from the Daily News Autos team.
Hyundai and Kia announced today that they are recalling more than 500,000 cars to fix a potentially dangerous issue with faulty brake lights. Defective stopper pads may prevent the brake lights from lighting up when the pedal is pressed, or may cause the cars to be turned on without putting a foot on the brake. No injuries or deaths were reported in the recall, which covers 390,000 2013 and 2014 Hyundai Elantras and 134,000 2012-2014 Kia Fortes. Find out more about this recall here.
What was originally offered on the Championship Editions of the CTS-V and ATS-V will now become an available package for 2018 CTS-V Sport sedans. Featuring Recaro seats with red stitching, carbon fiber trim and a suede microfiber steering wheel, the CTS-V’s new Morello Red Edition package gives it the sporty looks to match its fun driving dynamics.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
