2010 Kia Soul Recalls

Side Curtain Airbag

In the event of a crash where the side curtain airbags are deployed a headliner plate can detach, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will correct this concern by adding industrial adhesive strips to secure the headliner plates.

Brake Light Switch May Fail Prematurley

The affected Kia models are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation as well as concerns with other electrical systems including: Cruise control, push-button start feature, shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

Electrical Fire in Front or Rear Door

The front and/or rear doors have special wiring to control certain lighting functions. Electrical connections in these wire harnesses are soldered to help ensure a solid connection. These vehicles are being recalled because the solder joints in these lighting harnesses may not have been manufactured to the proper specification and when the lights are illuminated under certain conditions, an electrical short circuit may occur that can result in an electrical fire. Dealers will replace the necessary parts to address this concern.

based on 4 customer reviews
I am almost 60. Favorite car I have ever owned !
great little car,, plenty of space,,bought used,,18 inch rims,, tires aren't cheap,, all in all am greatly satified with car
Almost 2 years old now, and virtually flawless. A LOT of vehicle for the money. 18" rims run a little stiff and door panels mar a little easier than one would like. Still, great value and super fun to drive.
