Kia Motors South Africa will conduct a voluntary safety recall of approximately 798 Kia Soul vehicles commencing from March this year.
The purpose of the recall is to inspect the affected vehicle’s steering rack to confirm that the pinion nut is correctly secured.
The affected vehicles were all assembled in Korea between 2014 and 2015. In the event that the pinion nut is not correctly secured, there is a possibility that – on some affected vehicles – the driver might experience a knocking sound when turning the steering wheel.
Owners of the vehicles involved will be be telephonically notified by the Kia Motors South Africa’s call centre.
Owners will be assisted in having their nearest or preferred Kia dealer perform the inspection and carry out the repair of the steering rack, which should take less than an hour.
There is no charge related to this recall
