2005 Kia Spectra recalls

 

Engine, April 25, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On vehicles driven in areas where road salt is used, the straps that secure the fuel tank may rust and break. A broken fuel tank strap could allow the fuel tank to drop and contact the ground, which could result in a fuel leak. With any fuel leak, there is always an increased risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank straps and attaching hardware with zinc-coated parts. This recall is scheduled to begin during June 2011. The Kia recall number is SC090.
