Kia Sportage recall: Nearly 100k SUVs recalled for brake assist


Kia America, Inc. (Kia) is recalling certain 2023 Sportage vehicles. For this Kia Sportage recall, the brake booster diaphragm may become misaligned and cause an internal vacuum leak, which can result in a loss of power brake assist.

A loss of power brake assist can extend the distance required to stop, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and replace the brake booster as necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 21, 2023. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia’s number for this recall is SC272.

The 2023 Kia Sportage currently has four recalls, and we previously reported on a recall of the hybrid for a fire risk. If you own a 2023 Sportage, be sure to consult the NHTSA recalls portion of the website and type in the specific VIN of your truck to see if this current recall applies to your vehicle.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
