Kia brake recall for 2011-2013 Sorento models

Any new car recall that is announced is still being overshadowed by the whole VW scandal, which is good news for those other carmakers. However, it is still not good news for those owners affected by new recalls, such as those of you with a 2011-2013 Kia Sorento croosover.

Kia brake recall for 2009-2013 Sorento models

There are 377,000 of these models being recalled in all and were built between 2009 and 2013. The reason for the recall is because those affected vehicles could suffer from brake failure, or more so with the brake-shift interlock mechanism.

If enough force is put on this lever, then it could crack, which is something you do not want happening to brake components. If this were to happen, then the vehicle could be taken out of park without having to press your foot on the brake.

Kia is to notify affected customers soon so that these vehicles can be taken to dealers to have their brake-shift interlock mechanism for new ones. Are your worried about this, if so head to our dedicated Kia page to share your thoughts.
