Recall Alert : 2016 Kia Optima

RECALL Subject : Right Front Axle Driveshaft may Fail

Report Receipt Date: OCT 03, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V705000
Component(s): POWER TRAIN
Potential Number of Units Affected: 12,214


Manufacturer: Kia Motors America

SUMMARY:
Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2016 Kia Optima vehicles manufactured November 13, 2015, to April 23, 2016 and equipped with a 2.4l engine. The right front axle driveshaft may crack and fail.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the driveshaft cracks and separates from the vehicle, it will not be able to move forward. Additionally, if the parking brake is not applied upon exiting the vehicle, the vehicle may roll. Either scenario can increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front axle driveshaft, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 29, 2016. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC139.
