ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Kia has announced a recall that involves its 2010 Soul compact five-door hatch and 2011 Sorento mid-size crossover SUV. Around 35,185 of these vehicles sold in the United States are affected, plus 50,000 of these and two other Kia models, the Mohave and the Cadenza, around the world (the Mohave is sold as the Borrego SUV in the States, but there has been no such recall notice for this vehicle; the Cadenza large sedan is due to go on sale here in 2011).

The defect centers on faulty wiring for an adjustable speaker and interior illumination system, which may lead to a fire risk. Kia, which is part of Hyundai, has reported no accidents or injuries.

Kia dealers will replace a wiring harness free of charge. The phone number for Kia's consumer assistance center is 1 (800) 333-4542 and the safety recall campaign number is SC083. Alternatively, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a vehicle safety hotline: 1 (888) 327-4236 and a website, safercar.gov. The NHTSA campaign ID number for this recall is 10V388000.

In the wake of this recall comes the news that Kia's vice president, Chung Sungeun, has resigned. He was head of production.
