Kia Motors America Inc. has recalled approximately 209,000 Soul and Soul electric vehicles because a portion of the cars’ accelerator pedal has the potential to bend and fracture if the driver applies excessive force. The agency acknowledged the recall in a letter to the automaker, in which it said the defect in certain model year 2014-2015 Soul and Soul electric vehicles causes the accelerator pedal to bend or break. The letter says further that this can cause drivers to have difficulty in accelerating the vehicle and increases the risk of an automobile accident. Kia said in a statement that it was “not aware of any injuries or accidents as a result of this issue,” and that it would notify vehicle owners, starting last month.
