Kia Recalls Nearly 463,000 Telluride Vehicles in the US Due to Fire Risk

Kia recalls 463,000 Telluride SUVs in the US over electric seat fire risk, addressing safety concerns with free dealer repairs.

On June 9, it was reported that Kia America is recalling certain 2020-2024 Telluride vehicles due to a fire risk associated with electric seat slide knobs.

A total of 462,869 vehicles are affected. The issue, discovered in 2022, involves the potential overheating of the front seat motors, which could lead to a fire whether the vehicle is parked or in motion.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) advises owners to park their cars outside and away from buildings until repairs are completed. Dealers will install a switch rear cover and replace the slide knob for free.

Earlier this year, Kia recalled Telluride vehicles twice. On March 3, 2024, they recalled 35,031 units due to potential high-beam failure, which reduces visibility and increases crash risk. Dealers will inspect, repair, or replace high beams if necessary.

On March 26, 2024, Kia recalled approximately 427,000 Telluride vehicles due to issues with the intermediate shaft and right front axle not fully engaging, which could cause the vehicle to roll away when stopped, posing a serious safety threat.

This recall covers 2020 to 2024 models of the Telluride crossover.
