Kia recalling nearly 87,000 Fortes because of fire risk
The Associated Press
(AP) - Kia Motors America is recalling nearly 87,000 of its 2014 Forte sedans because of faulty equipment that could cause the cars to catch fire.
The recall notice issued Saturday affects Kia Fortes made from Dec. 5, 2012, through April 17, 2014. The cooling fan resistor might overheat and melt in those vehicles, increasing the risk of a fire.
The recall is expected to begin Feb. 24.
