Kia Motors and five overseas carmakers will recall 18,124 vehicles in Korea due to faulty parts, the Transport Ministry said on Dec. 1.
This is the latest in a series of recall orders issued by the ministry to both domestic and foreign car manufacturers.
Kia Motor, Honda Motor, Citroen, Peugeot, Iveco and MAN Truck & Bus plan to recall nine different models. The models include Kia‘s Mohave SUV, Citroen’s C4 Cactus 1.6 Blue-HDi hatchback, and Honda’s CBR1000RA motorcycle, the ministry said in a statement.
The problems include engine failure caused by oil leakage in the Mohave, lack of strength in C4 Cactus’ engine compartment cover and the engine stalls in Honda’s CBR100RA, the statement said.
Vehicle owners can visit designated repair and service centers to replace the parts free of charge, it said.
