Kia Telluride

The Kia Telluride is involved in the recall



More than 463,000 Kia vehicle owners in the United States are being advised to park outside and away from structures amid fears of fire.

The South Korean carmaker said it was recalling Telluride SUV models between 2020 and 2024 over fire risks stemming from overheating front power seat motors.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said the guidance for motorists to park in alternative areas was in place until the recall repair was complete.

This will see Kia dealers install a bracket from the power seat switch back covers and replace the seat slide knobs to remedy the issue, according to Reuters.

As part of the recall, motorists with certain 2022 Dodge Durango and Ram 2500 and 3500 vehicles could be sent a recall notice.

The NHTSA said there were fears that there could potentially be debris in the engine, heightening the chance of the vehicle stalling and the loss of power steering.

The debris, believed to be from the manufacturing process, will be addressed by Toyota in a remedy which is still currently under development.
