According to report, KIA recalled about 340,000 Souls over steering defect which has continued after the first fix by the South Korean giant
The recall affects certain model year 2014-2016 Soul and Soul EVs, made between July 21, 2013 and Sept. 30, 2015.
The pinion plug could allow a pinion gear to separate from the steering assembly, according to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
“If the pinion gear separates,” the report says, “steering will be lost, increasing the risk of a crash.”.
The recall will commence by mid November during which KIA will inspect the affected vehicles and carryout the repair free of charge
