The engine may not have been machined properly during manufacturing, resulting in premature internal engine wear. This could cause the engine to seize, increasing risk of a crash.
Recall repairs on your Kia must be performed by a Kia dealership. Kia will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in May, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Kia dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The internal engine components may wear prematurely due to machining errors during manufacturing. This can cause the engine to seize. Dealers will inspect the engine assembly, replacing it free of charge as needed to resolve the concern.
