Manufacturing Error Causes Acceleration Trouble in Recalled 2016 Kia Sorentos
Barely off the assembly line, Kia is recalling more than 12,300 model year 2016 Sorentos due to a manufacturing error.
Due to an improperly soldered component in the accelerator pedal assembly, the driver may not be able to accelerate the vehicle.
The inability to accelerate increases the likelihood of a crash.
Kia will notify affected owners and dealers will replace the accelerator assembly, free of charge.
For more information, owners can contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542.
