Motor company Kia is recalling some cars due to a door-wiring problem, it was announced today.
Kia Motors (UK) said it had discovered that in certain circumstances there is a very small danger of the wiring over-heating and that could, in turn, cause a fire.
The recall effects the owners of 73 Soul models and 476 Sorento KX-3 vehicles which feature mood lighting.
The cars being recalled were built between September of last year and June of this year.
Hamish McCowan, after-sales and logistics director at Kia Motors (UK), said: “We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes our customers and we are not aware of any vehicles in the UK suffering this problem.
“But we believe it is better to be safe and that is why we are taking this recall action.”
