Kia recalls 463,000 Telluride SUVs amid fire hazard concerns, urges outdoor parking

Kia America is recalling approximately 463,000 Telluride SUVs from the 2020-2024 model years, urging owners to park their vehicles outside and away from structures until a fire hazard is resolved.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that the front power seat motor in these Tellurides may overheat due to a stuck slide knob, potentially leading to a fire whether the vehicle is parked or being driven.

Kia decided on the recall on May 29, following reports of one under-seat fire and six incidents of localized melting in the seat tilt motor between August 2022 and March 2024. Fortunately, no injuries, crashes, or fatalities have been reported.
