How to take care of Kia safety recalls
Do you have a recall on your Kia? Want to learn how to take care of Kia safety recalls? We can help! Occasionally, the safety regulators at the NHTSA will determine that a safety recall is necessary. For the most part though, manufacturers like Kia issue these safety recalls voluntarily. Not only is it an act of good faith to report on your own cars, but Kia wants to ensure that its customers can drive in the safest Kia vehicle possible.

All you will need to look up your car is your 17 digit VIN. You can find your VIN on your car usually in the lower driver’s side corner of the windshield. To see it, you have to look in from the outside.
Is free to get recall work done?
If the recall is a safety recall, then Kia will provide the parts and labor entirely free as long as you are at an authorized Kia dealer such as Kia of Puyallup. What’s more, if you already had the work done before a recall was issued, then Kia can and will reimburse you for any costs that you have already incurred related to the newly issued recall.
It doesn’t matter if your Kia is in warranty or not, or even if you are the second owner. Regardless of how you came in possession of your Kia, you can get any safety recall work done completely free of charge. Second owners don’t always get notified of recalls unless their VIN is in the system of a factory authorized repair facility.
