Kia has recently issued a recall for the Soul model on the vehicles equipped with a sunroof, which may have an issue when the side curtain airbag is deploying.
According to the South Korean based automaker, the total number of affected vehicles stands at 95,314 and it involves the 2010 to 2014 model year. These cars have been produced between the 8th of January, 2009, and the 2nd of October, 2013.
“A headliner plate may detach during deployment of the curtain air bag. A detached headliner plate may increase the risk of injury to the occupant during a vehicle crash”, says the carmaker in its official press release.
Owners of the 2010-2014 model year Kia Soul, equipped with a sunroof, will be notified by the car manufacturer and the company’s dealers will install industrial adhesive strips to secure the headliner plates. This will happen free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on the 2nd of February, this year. For any extra details on the subject, owners of these models can contact the Kia customer service at 1 949 468 4800 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle safety hotline at 1 888 327 4236.
