Kia Australia is recalling 2667 examples of its Sorento SUV and Carnival people mover models due to a manufacturing defect that may cause a fuel leak.

This recall affects vehicles from the current MQ4 generation of Sorento and KA4 generation of Carnival sold in 2020.

“Due to a manufacturing defect, a fuel leak may occur from the low-pressure fuel line hose clamp,” says the company in its recall notice.

“If a fuel leak occurs, this may result in an engine compartment fire.”
