PhotoKia Motors Corporation is recalling 219,800 model year 2006-2014 Kia Sedonas manufactured from June 15, 2005, through April 04, 2014.


The secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed.


If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could open unexpectedly while the vehicle is being driven, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.


What to do


Kia will notify owners and dealers will replace the secondary hood latch or clean and lubricate the latch, depending on the vehicle's location and the condition of the latch. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 25, 2016.


Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall number is SC134.
