Kia is recalling 627 examples of its Carnival diesel as they may lose power or stall.

    “Due to incorrect manufacturing of an engine wiring harness, a poor connection may occur at the crankshaft position sensor which may lead to a loss of motive power and/or engine stalling,” the company says in its recall notice.

    “A loss of motive power or engine stalling whilst driving could increases the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”

    • A total of 627 vehicles are affected from 2023
