TowTimes.com - NHTSA: Kia Recall for Fire Risk


Recommended Posts

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Consumer Alert:

Kia America has issued a new recall for certain Model Year 2008-2009 Kia Sportage vehicles due to a continued risk of fire.

Kia strongly urges owners of these vehicles to park their cars outside and away from homes and other structures until their vehicles have been repaired. An engine compartment fire originating from around the hydraulic electronic control unit (HECU) may occur while the vehicle is parked or being driven.

These vehicles were previously recalled in 2016, and owners will need to have their vehicles repaired again under this new recall. The recall repair is under development. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed in December. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 800-333-4542. Kia’s number for this recall is SC253.

Vehicle owners can visit NHTSA.gov/Recalls and enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number to see if their vehicle is under recall. Owners can also download NHTSA’s SaferCar app and enter their vehicle information, and the app will push a notification if a recall is issued.
