Sportage and Cadenza Models Recalled
Owners of nearly 380,000 Kia vehicles are being warned to park their cars outdoors because of an engine compartment fire risk. The auto manufacturer, which is based in Korea, has issued a recall of certain Sportage models from the years 2017 through 2021. Cadenza model sedans from 2017 through 2019 were also included in the Kia recall. The notice states that a short circuit issue within the electronic hydraulic brake control unit may result in an excessive current, thereby causing an increased fire risk. The recall advises that owners of the affected vehicles should park them in an area that is outdoors and away from any structures until they are able to have the vehicles repaired.
