What’s the problem?
This recall affects 2013-2014 Kia Optima vehicles equipped with 2.4L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) or 2.0L GDI Turbo engines, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The low pressure fuel hose on affected vehicles may deteriorate and crack over time due to heat generated within the engine compartment, NHTSA said. If the fuel hose cracks, a fuel leak can occur, increasing the risk of an engine fire.
Kia Motors will notify owners when a remedy is available. This recall began on April 16, 2020.
