The Korean automobile manufacturer Kia has recently announced a global recall of 86,000 vehicles, affected models include the Kia Soul, Sorento, Mohave and Cadeza.

The recall caused Kia’s co-chief executive to resign, a breakdown of affected models shows that the 36,00 Kia Souls are affected, also 33,000 Sorentos, 8,900 Cadenzas and 8,000 Mohaves, interestingly the recall does not affect China.

According to CarAdvice the recall is due to a potential fire risk, this is to do with the wiring for their adjustable speaker and lighting system,

Kia suggest that this problem has not resulted in any accidents and is a voluntary recall, if you think you own an affected model you should contact your local dealer or check out their contact pages.

    By "voluntary" recall they must mean one they are not notifying customers about. We have a Kia Soul bought in February (and we LOVE it) but we have heard neither from Kia Motors nor from our local dealer — not through e-mail, snail mail or by phone — despite the fact they have all of those contacts for us. If I hadn't seen the article in the news, I wouldn't know about the recall.
