Recall Alert : 2016 Kia Sorento (seat)

RECALL Subject : Inadequately Welded Driver Seatback Frame

Report Receipt Date: OCT 24, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V770000
Component(s): SEATS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,408

Manufacturer: Kia Motors America

SUMMARY:
Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2016 Kia Sorento vehicles manufactured March 3, 2016 to March 21, 2016. The driver's seatback frame may have been produced with inadequate weld joints and, as a result, the seatback may not function as designed in the event of a rear-end collision.
CONSEQUENCE:
In the event of a crash, the driver seatback frame could break and fail to restrain a seat occupant, increasing the risk of injury.
REMEDY:
Kia will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the welds and replace the driver seatback frame, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 9, 2016. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC140.
