Recall Alert: 2014 Kia Sorento

2014-kia-sorento

Kia is recalling 9,345 model-year 2014 versions of the Sorento crossover due to a problem with the front axle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles are front-wheel-drive versions equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines and were manufactured between Jan. 7 and March 12, 2013 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb). A manufacturing issue could cause the right front axle to fracture, resulting in a loss of power to the front wheels. This could lead to a crash.   

The automaker has reported one customer complaint and 10 warranty claims related to the issue, but no accidents have been caused by the defect.

Kia will notify owners beginning in September, and dealers will replace the front axle shaft assembly for free. Owners can call Kia at 800-333-4542 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
