Recall Alert : Kia 2016-2017 Sorento

November 30, 2016 NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V862000
Trailer Brakes May Stay Illuminated/FMVSS 108


If the trailer brake lights stay illuminated while being used, other drivers may be confused, increasing the risk of a crash.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V862000

Manufacturer Kia Motors America

Components

Potential Number of Units Affected 10,212

Summary

Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Sorento vehicles manufactured October 27, 2014, to August 25, 2016, and 2017 Sportage vehicles manufactured December 10, 2015, to August 26, 2016. The affected vehicles are equipped with an accessory trailer hitch wiring harness that, due to a malfunction of the tow hitch module, may result in the trailer brake lights being constantly illuminated. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, " Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Remedy

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the trailer tow hitch harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 18, 2017. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC142.
