Kia RecallsRear Suspension Welds Break
The rear suspension may have a faulty weld, which could result in the weld cracking. Dealers will inspect the welds at the rear suspension cross member, replacing the rear cross member assembly as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The secondary hood latch may stick in the open position and not fully secure the hood. This could allow the hood to open while driving. Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch or clean and lubricate the latch, depending on the vehicle's location and the condition of the latch free of charge to resolve the concern.
The front lower control arms may fracture and separate from the vehicle due to exposure to road salt and corrosion. Dealers will replace the front lower control arms or add additional corrosion protection to existing control arms as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.
