Vehicle Make Model Model Year(s)

KIA SOUL 2014

Manufacturer: Kia Motors Corporation

SUMMARY:
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2014 Kia Soul vehicles manufactured July 21, 2013, through January 17, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the plug that secures the pinion gear to the steering gear assembly may loosen due to an improper application of thread-locking adhesive during the assembly process.

CONSEQUENCE:
As a result, the pinion gear can separate from the steering gear assembly, causing a loss of steering, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the pinion plug with a new pinion plug which has properly applied thread-locking adhesive, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2014. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC108.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
