Kia Recalls Nearly 500k SUVs over Fire Risk

by | Jun 30, 2024 | Personal Injury

Kia is recalling nearly 463,000 2020-2024 Telluride SUVs because the front seats could overheat, posing a fire risk, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

The automaker is warning people with the 462,869 affected models of SUVs to park them outside until they get their vehicles fixed to reduce fire risk.

The issue lies with the front power seat motor, which could overheat because of a seat control switch that could become jostled out of place if hit hard by something. This could cause a fire risk, as well as an increased risk of injury.

According to CNN, Kia first noticed the problem in 2022 when a customer discovered smoke coming from under the driver’s seat of the Telluride.

Soon, similar instances had been reported in 2023 and 2024, prompting Kia to investigate the situation.

If you or a loved one has suffered losses due to these, or any, Kia vehicles, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more, contact the trusted attorneys at Breslin and Breslin today.
