Fire Risk Prompts Kia Recall
According to a recent statement from Kia, over 147,000 vehicles from the car make will be recalled due to a risk of fire. The vehicles in question include the Kia Seltos and Kia Soul and incorporate both 2020 and 2021 models.
More specifically, the issue at hand involves piston rings which may have been improperly heat-treated. Because of this, it is possible that these piston rings will scuff the internal cylinder bore and increase current oil consumption. In the event that oil were to leak out onto the exhaust components nearby, it is possible that it could ignite.
More Information About the Kia Recall
Vehicle owners affected by the recall will begin to receive notices as early as June, 2021. Recent reports have indicated that vehicles included in the recall will need a completely new engine, which could dramatically increase the timeline and cost of the recall for Kia. More information about the recall will likely be made available in the coming months. Until then, those interested in learning more can do so here.
