Still hot from the assembly line, Kia is recalling about 208,900 cars due to a problem with the accelerator pedal.

A section of the accelerator pedal in certain model year 2014-2015 Kia Soul and Soul electric vehicles may bend and fracture.

If the pedal is bent or broken the driver may have difficulty accelerating, increasing the risk of a crash.

Kia will notify owners affected by the recall and dealers will add a supporting rubber underneath the pedal stopper, free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542.
