Kia recall not affecting Barbados

A recent Kia Motors Corporation recall of certain models is not affecting Barbados.

Word of this came from Margaret Hoyte, marketing manager of McEnearney Quality Incorporated (MQI), local agents for Kia vehicles in Barbados on the radio programme ‘’The RPM Report’, heard on radio station 98.1 FM. 

“The models are not any of those which came to Barbados, neither have we been notified of any problems affecting vehicles sold in Barbados”, she told programme host Trevor Thorpe. 

The Korean automaker is recalling certain models from 2007-2010, including the Rondo and Sportage,and from model year 2007-2011, the Sorento, model year 2007 Sedona, model year 2010-2011 Soul, and model year 2011 Optima vehicles. 

The problem is a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed, or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal.
