Kia Motors America is recalling 87 model year 2020-2021 Rios.

The brake master cylinder may have been manufactured with sharp edges that can damage the inner oil seal, resulting in reduced braking performance.

Reduced braking performance can cause longer brake pedal travel or extend the distance required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 11, 2022.

Owners may contact Kia customer service at (800) 333-4542. Kia's number for this recall SC223.
