Kia Vehicles in NZ Unaffected by US Recalls

Kia Motors New Zealand says the vehicles it sells in this market are not affected by the recalls recently announced in the United States.

The two separate issues, an oil leak affecting a particular series of engine and the other relating to an overheating catalytic converter, are specific to vehicles sold in the United States.

Engines and other parts used in Kia models sold in New Zealand are sourced from different manufacturing plants and there have been no issues reported with these units, says Todd McDonald, General Manager of Kia Motors New Zealand.
