2010-'13 Kia Soul Recalled for Headliner Plate Problem

WASHINGTON Kia Motors America is recalling 95,314 2010-'13 Kia Soul hatchbacks because a headliner plate may detach during deployment of the side curtain airbag, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"A detached headliner plate may increase the risk of injury to the occupant during a vehicle crash," said NHTSA in its recall summary.

The automaker told federal safety regulators it has received three Customer Assistance Center case reports linked to the recall, but no accident reports or warranty claims.

The affected vehicles were built from January 8, 2009 to October 2, 2013.

Kia dealers will install industrial adhesive strips to secure the headliner plates. The recall is expected to begin on February 2. Owners can contact Kia customer service at 1-949-468-4800.

Edmunds says: This recall does not begin for another month. If you own a 2010-'13 Kia Soul and have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
