My vehicle is due in tomorrow to have this work done. Has anyone else had this done? Is there any difference in bake feel afterwards & what exactly does it entail? I'll post my thoughts after its been done. Model year 15 Soul Mixx.

Mine's a 15 C+, not heard anything but it's only 7 weeks old so maybe it's already had whatever needs doing, done.
I keep getting this nagging feeling I was supposed to be doing something with my life.

If you login to the owners area of the Kia website you may find a message alerting you of an outstanding action required to your vehicle. You should receive details of the MyKia owners area in the post. Your vehicle may not require action as mine was on the cusp of the fault being rectified at the factory. My car is 4 months old. It is an advisory fix that can be left until your next service but I felt I wanted it done sooner rather than later.

Does anyone know what the issue is with the brake pedal to warrant a recall,
Mine seems to have developed a intermittent fault where the brakes sometimes seem to be slow at releasing after pressing the brake pedal.      So I'm wondering if this is what the recall is for.

What a load of balls
I emailed Kia as I didn't have the code to login into the owners area to check to see if my car has any recalls and they told me as my car was registered to Kia uk first then I can't have the code. Even though i told them it was brand new with only 4 mile on the clock when I bought it .

Here's the email they sent me .


Thanks for your email.

Currently, customers who buy a nearly new Kia are unable to register for MyKia.

We're looking in to ensuring that all Kia owners are able to use this new feature and will look to update you when this becomes available.

I hope this answers your questions. If you do need any other help please get in contact with us on – 0333 2022 990.

Kind regards
Meg Corr

They gave you a phone number, call them if you're worried about it.

Hi again, no real difference felt with new brake pedal completed. They have tightened up the braking so that the car feels similar to when it was brand new, which is nice. The metal pedal bar looks new but otherwise nothing significant to report.
