Kia recalls 380,000 U.S. vehicles for fire risks

Kia Motors Corp said it will recall nearly 380,000 Sportage and Cadenza vehicles because an electrical circuit could cause a fire in the engine compartment.

The recall covers vehicles built from the 2017-2021 model years and dealers will replace some fuses in the electrical junction box.

Kia is advising owners to park outside and away from structures as a precaution until the recall repair is complete. The recall was prompted by a a similar one in the Korean market. No fires, crashes or injuries have been reported related to the issue, Kia said.
