Kia recalls cars over fire risk

Thursday, 11 November, 2004

Korean car maker Kia has recalled about 27,000 Rio cars to fix a fuel line fault that could result in an engine fire. The company said there was a possibility that the fuel distribution rail might crack in some vehicles, resulting in a fuel leak.

Kia said the fuel distribution rail and the fuel hose would be replaced as a precaution. The vehicles affected included the Rio sedan and hatch models with both manual and automatic transmissions and manufactured between May 26, 2000 and March 26, 2004.
