2014-2016 Kia Soul recall over steering concerns

The NHTSA has found there to be five warranty claims for this issue , but the good news is that there are no reports of any accidents.

Reason for the recall – There is a chance that the adhesive securing the steering pinion gear to the steering gear assembly could come apart, in which the driver could then lose control of his vehicle.

Kia dealers are to inspect suspected models and if needed will replace the pinion plug, along with installing a set bolt to make things more secure. The NHTSA said the recall capping is to being on December 22. Concerned about any other Kia problems, if so then please visit our dedicated page to this car brand.
