Kia Carnival and Sorento recalled


Kia Australia is recalling 1512 examples of its Carnival people mover and Sorento SUV because the shift lock mechanism may not return to the locked position allowing the gear selector to be moved from park without pressing the brake pedal.

This recall affects YP-generation Carnival models and UM-generation Sorento models produced during 2015.

“The Shift lock holder may have been produced out of specification, as a result the shift lock mechanism may not return to the locked position allowing the gear selector to be moved from park without depressing the brake pedal,” said the company in its recall notice.

“If the gear selector is unintentionally moved out of park without depressing the brake pedal, it may result in a vehicle to roll-away potentially increasing the risk of injury or death to occupants or other road users.”

If you own an affected vehicle you’ll need to contact your local Kia dealer to schedule in an appointment to have the shifter mechanised inspected, free of charge.

If you have any further questions you can call Kia Customer Service on 131 542.
