Kia does not appear to have any silent recalls as of 2016. It has several active recalls, as reported by Edmunds.com, that include cooling fan resistors for Kia Forte sedans, corrosion problems for 2006 to 2012 Kia Sedona minivans and steering gear assembly separation for 2014 Kia Soul hatchbacks.
Silent recalls are when companies bypass the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission to directly offer repairs to remedy customer complaints. This type of recall is most often found with home, sports and toys products, among others. Customers can search SaferProducts.gov, monitored by the CPSC, to find recalls and reports of unsafe items.
