Kia recalls 2014 Kia Soul vehicles over potential loss of steering

Kia Motors

Kia Motors Corporation 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.

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.

51,641 vehicles are affected by the recall.

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.

Yes My 2015 KIA Soul was part of the recall and my car steering broke on the freeway. I have a head injury and medical bills from the head on collision with a tree in Martinez California. Had to relocate due to be harassed by my neighbor.
