WASHINGTON — Kia Motors America is recalling 3,107 2014 Kia Cadenza sedans with 19-inch non-chrome aluminum wheels because the wheels may fracture, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The wheels on the affected vehicles may fracture from impacts such as large, deep potholes," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "A wheel fracture could cause the circular rim to separate, resulting in a loss of tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash."

Kia told federal safety regulators that no injuries have been linked to the recall.

Two other Cadenza wheel types are not affected by the recall. They are the 18-inch non-chrome aluminum alloy wheel and 19-inch chrome aluminum alloy wheel.

The affected Cadenzas were built from February 1, 2013 through August 27, 2013.

Kia dealers will replace the wheels with new wheels, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin sometime in June. Owners can contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542.

Edmunds says: If you own one of the affected Kia Cadenzas, it's best to get in touch with your dealer for next steps, since the recall is expected to begin shortly.
