In areas where road salt is used, the fuel tank straps could rust and break. This could cause the fuel tank to fall and contact the ground. If this were to happen, a fuel leak could develop, increasing the risk of a fire.

This should be considered a high priority recall. The fuel tank could fall to the ground without warning. Please contact your Kia dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
