Should more Kia vehicles be recalled for fire risk?


The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

“This goes beyond just the small universe that Kia has chosen to recall,” Jason Levine, Executive Director for the Center for Author Safety said. “The problem is much bigger.”
