Kia recalls about 3,000 older minivans over fuel leak and fire risk

Sedona vans from 2011 and 2012 may see fuel rail develop heat-induced crack

Kia is recalling roughly 3,000 Sedona minivans in Canada over a defect that poses a fire risk, reports Automotive News Canada.

Minivans from model years 2011 and 2012 may develop a small heat-induced crack in their fuel rail above the engine; if that crack leads to a leak, it poses a fire risk, Kia said in a statement.

In the U.S., a total 51,000 minivans are covered by the recall.

While there have been no reports of fires in either country yet, owners Stateside have reported check-engine lights coming on, fuel smells coming from under hood, and leaks coming from cracked fuel rails. A fix is still in the works.

A separate recall for close to 142,000 examples of the 2013- and 2014-model-year Optima suffering the same problem apparently “has no impact in Canada,” Kia says.
