Kia Motors America is recalling 3,714 model year 2015-2016 Kia Soul Electric Vehicle.

The parking mechanism may become damaged if the driver moves the gear shift lever into Park 'P' before the vehicle comes to a complete stop. If the parking mechanism is damaged, unintended vehicle movement may occur when the gear shift lever is in the Park 'P' position and the parking brake is not applied.

Unintended vehicle movement can increase the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin August 7, 2020.
