Kia Forte Recalled For Cooling Fan Resistors That Can Burn.

Kia has announced the recall of around 87,000 of its Forte cars from the 2014 model year, after discovering a defective part that could lead to vehicle fires. Confirmation from the automakers suggests that in those Forte models affected, a resistor within the cooling fan can dangerously overheat and in the worst instances melt, or perhaps even trigger a fire.

All 2014 Kia Forte units still unsold across the US are apparently exempt from the recall, though approximately 87,000 vehicles currently on US roads will have to be brought in for repairs. Owners of affected vehicles are being advised to contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236. Affected owners will be contacted by Kia ahead of the scheduled February 24 recall commencement, though concerns and questions can in the meantime be directed at 800-333-4542 – Ref: SC113.
