Kia has recalled their 2020 Kia Stinger for a defect with the power steering. The Rack & Nut/Ball Assembly (RBNA) was manufactured incorrectly because of a calibration flaw. Having an insufficient number of balls, the other balls in the RBNA could eventually fracture and make steering difficult or impossible. This makes a car crash much more likely.
At least 104 Kia Stingers are affected and are being recalled. Owners of this car should take their vehicle to their local Kia dealership for a free replacement. Drivers discovered the issue by noticing a strange noise when turning the steering wheel.
The defect was discovered in June of 2020 by an owner of a new Kia Stinger in Korea. The driver reported a noise and difficulty steering the vehicle. Two other drivers have since reported similar problems.
The 104 affected vehicles were manufactured from 10/7/2019 thru 12/12/2019. If you own this vehicle, you can contact Kia’s customer service line at 1-800-333-4542. Kia will begin notifying owners of the affected cars on August 20, 2020.
