Recall Alert: 2010 Kia Soul, 2011 Kia Sorrento

Sep 03, 2010

The 2010 Kia Soul is not having a good first year. After an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) over steering issues, the Soul is now being recalled for having a defective wiring harness. What’s more, the 2011 Kia Sorrento is being recalled for similar issues.

The recall concerns wiring in “the Soul’s speaker lights — which are standard equipment on the Soul Exclaim and Soul Sport and optional on the Soul Plus — and the Sorento’s optional accent lighting in the front and rear door trim panels on the EX trim may have been improperly soldered,” says KickingTires.

According to the NHTSA’s recall database, “When the lights are illuminated under certain conditions, an electrical short may occur that can result in a fire.”

To remedy this issue “Kia dealers will replace the wiring harnesses for the lights in the Kia Soul vehicle's advanced lighting speakers and the wiring harness for the Kia Sorento vehicle's interior accent illumination,” reports Edmunds.

Owners will be notified this month. If you own one of the affected models, you can contact Kia at 1-800-333-4541 or the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
