Kia Pinion Gear Recall:

The automotive manufacturer Kia Motors America more commonly known simply as Kia is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Kia Soul and Soul EV vehicles manufactured between January 18, 2014, and September 30, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the adhesive used to secure the steering pinion gear to the steering gear assembly may not have sufficient strength, and as a result, the pinion gear may separate without warning from the steering gear assembly.

 

What Can Happen:

If the pinion gear separates while the vehicle is in motion, there would be a loss of steering which could increase the risk of a crash as the driver may then lose control of the vehicle.

 

REMEDY:

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the affected pinion plug that secures the pinion gear. Dealers will also install a set bolt for additional reinforcement. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 22, 2015. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall number associated with this issue is SC125.
