A manufacturing defect could cause a vehicle fire, according to the manufacturer.
The affected vehicles are stamped Model Year 2020.
The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a manufacturing defect, a fuel leak may occur from the low-pressure fuel line hose clamp. If a fuel leak occurs, this may result in an engine compartment fire.
“A vehicle fire may increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.”
A spokesperson for Kia Australia told Drive: “No cars affected by leaks or fires locally.”
