What are the defects?
The fuel rail in petrol vehicles may develop a small heat induced crack, which can result in fuel leakage.
What are the hazards?
If a fuel rail leaks, this can cause fuel to leak onto the road surface and cause a fire, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Kia Motors Australia is contacting all known owners of affected vehicles. Consumers should contact their nearest Kia Motors Australia dealer to arrange for inspection and repair of the vehicle.
Parts are due to become available in July 2020. Once parts become available, Kia will contact affected owners again, requesting that owners make an appointment to have the vehicle repaired.
For further information, consumers should contact Kia Motors Australia on 13 15 42.
