Re­call on Kia Souls

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Kia is re­call­ing all Soul and Soul EV ve­hi­cles pro­duced be­tween 18 Jan­uary 2014 and 30 Septem­ber 2015, as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure.

The re­call is due to a po­ten­tial fault which, in ex­treme cir­cum­stances, could cause the steer­ing to fail.

The Korean com­pany has found that an ad­he­sive with in­suf­fi­cient bond­ing strength was used dur­ing as­sem­bly - and could cause a plug se­cur­ing the pin­ion gear to the steer­ing gear as­sem­bly to loosen.

The num­ber of UK Soul and Soul EV ve­hi­cles af­fected stands at 5,707 and Kia says all will be re­paired at no ex­pense to the own­ers, who are in the process of be­ing no­ti­fied.
