Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—June 7, 2012.
Summary: Kia is recalling certain model year 2009 Borrego vehicles, manufactured from May 2, 2008, through January 20, 2009, equipped with non-adjustable brake pedals. Certain pedal mounts may have a fiberglass composition that allows them to break off in a collision where the impact has not immobilized the vehicle, which would then allow the vehicle to roll.
Consequence: If this occurs, the driver would need to stop the vehicle with the parking brake or experience a possible second impact, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy: Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake pedal mount, free of charge. The recall will begin during June 2012. Owners may contact Kia Consumer Assistance Center at 1-800-333-4542.
Notes: Kia’s Safety Recall Campaign Number is SC096. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
