It only effects 73 Kia Souls and with mood lighting manufactured between Sept 2009 and June 2010 and 476 Sorentos from Sept 2009 to July 2010.
Kia will start to contact customers this week.
No Kia has gone up in flames yet and it is just a precautionary recall.
Problem is with the wiring potentially over heating. No problems have been found in Europe but problems in the US have caused the recall.
the problems have all happened in the US up to press.....apparently 2 or 3 cars have had door fires (its a US supplied part to KIA that is at fault apparently). The recall started in the US and now Canada. But as the part is common to all Newer Souls with the outer ring mood lighting - the recall will spread.
