Post by smileymiley » Thu Sep 20, 2018 11:11 am

Just received letter about recall for a potential fault of the hydraulic clutch actuator housing. Booking car in to repair.

Got mine today too. Bit annoyed, as Kia already knew about it when I had my last service (US press reports early May, which I was unaware of at the time), and I will need to take another day off to get it done.

Hi guys. Don't get steamed up since a lot of cars pass the inspection and need no work done. Admin wise I think Kia needed time to check production dates and VIN nos. to see how many cars might have this potentially faulty part

I don't think the admin would be big for finding out the cars affected, that's just a database query based on the parts known from the US recall. I think it's more likely they decided on phases (fair enough) - US, then Europe, and no doubt APAC separately. None of which changes the fact that if they'd got their finger out, the dealer could have checked at my last service or thati will have to sacrifice another day's holiday to get it sorted. I'm not particularly worried that the car will burst into flames on me.

PS They don't have good form: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39893111
