Kia America is recalling 28,065 model year 2016 Sedonas and Sorentos.
The vehicles may have been manufactured with faulty automatic transmission shift lever assembly components, preventing the shift lever from locking.
This can allow the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.
MotorBiscuit, a website offering automotive news, reviews and buying advice, reports there are nearly 150 deaths and 2,000 injuries each year due to rollaway accidents.
What to do
Dealers will inspect and replace the automatic transmission shift lever assembly components -- as necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed October 7, 2022.
Owners may contact Kia customer service at (800) 333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC246.
