Kia Sorento recalled due to faulty accelerator assembly

Monday, April 6th, 2015 at 12:01 am    

12,361 Kia Sorento vehicles are being recalled by Kia after learning about a defective accelerator assembly that might cause the vehicle to accelerate improperly, a report by The Washington Post revealed on Wednesday, March 25.

According to a document issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Kia Motors America has issued the recall due to a capacitor on an accelerator pedal circuit board that has not been soldered properly by the component manufacturer, Canadian-based KSR International. According to the Kia, the faulty accelerator assembly component may force the car into a decelerated state which could increase the chance of a rear-end collision. Vehicles manufactured between October 27, 2014 and January 29, 2015 are affected by the recall.

The automotive giant began sending recall letters to affected consumers in February.
