Thousands Of Kia Cars Recalled

Posted on Sep 02, 2010
   About 35,000 Soul and Sorento vehicles are being recalled by Kia Motors for faulty wiring on interior lighting panels that could be a fire hazard.

   Around 24,000 2010 Kia Soul compact wagons and more than 11,000 2011 Kia Sorento sedans have been recalled.

   Kia told the government that some wiring harnesses in the Soul's front door trim panels and the Sorento's front and rear door trim panels may have been improperly soldered, possibly leading to an electrical short.

   This short could cause fires, according to the South Korean company.

   No injuries or accidents have yet been reported. Owners will be notified of the defect later this month, officials said, and the wiring harnesses will be replaced.
