Kia is now facing a potential defect related with the seat-belt pre-tensioner on the Soul and Sportage. Now Kia is issuing a recall of both cars in Britain.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Kia UK mentions the recall affects 5,787 Sportages made at the Zilina, Slovakia factory between October 2011 and November 2012. Also the Soul with 1,432 models that were built at Kwangju plant in Korea between August 2011 and March 2012.

“Although Kia is not aware of any injuries resulting from this possible fault, discovered as a result of on-going monitoring of customer vehicles, the company is concerned that some pre-tensioners may not work properly due to a faulty piston within the mechanism,” the Korean automaker said in a statement.

As always Kia stands for their warranty and they work they do, all the work will be done free of charge replacing all the faulty parts. For any concerns, owners can contact Customer Service Center for more details.
