Kia Recalls Over 72,000 SUVs For Engine Fire Risk, Owners Should Park Outside
Here we go, again.
Kia Motors has issued another recall for 2008-2009 Sportage SUVs after reports of more engine fires.
The cars are being recalled due to fire risks that apparently can start near a hydraulic engine control device.
Apparently, fires can start whether the engine is turned on or off. Yikes.
Now, no injuries were reported due to the fires. The Korean automaker says it has reports of eight fires and 15 cases of melting or damage since April 2017.
The company says owners should park outside and away from buildings and other vehicles until it figures out the cause of the fires and develops a remedy.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car owners can visit their website and enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number to see if their vehicle is under recall.
