Kia Australia has issued a recall for the MY20 Stinger liftback over concerns a manufacturing fault could block the fuel nozzle.
“A plastic burr may remain after the moulding process of the fuel pump’s jet nozzle housing, potentially blocking the nozzle,” Kia says in its recall notice.
“A blocked nozzle can result in insufficient supply of fuel to the engine. An insufficient supply of fuel to the engine can result in the vehicle losing power or stalling. This can result in serious injury or death of vehicle occupants and other road users.”
- 372 vehicles are affected by this recall, sold between 11 May 2020 and 22 July 2020.
