2014 Kia Sorento Recalled for Axle Shaft Issue

Erick Ayapana
Aug 23, 2013
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recalled certain 2014 Kia Sorento vehicles for possible issues related to the front axle shaft. More than 9000 units are affected.
The Problem: The NHTSA has recalled 9345 model year 2014 Kia Sorento crossovers equipped with the front-drive, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine powertrain. These vehicles may have a faulty passenger-side front axle shaft that could fracture, resulting in a loss of power to the wheels. Additionally, affect vehicles could roll away if the parking brake is not applied, even if the transmission is in the Park position.
The Fix: The recall (number SC099) begins in September 2013. Kia will notify owners and replace the front axle shaft free of charge. Owners can contact the automaker at 800-333-4542 for more information.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 9345 model year 2014 Kia Sorento front-drive crossovers powered by the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.
