Kia is recalling more than 36,200 of its K900 luxury sedan and Stinger sports sedan over the risk of an engine compartment fire.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2019-20 K900s and 2018-23 Stingers equipped with the turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 engine. The issue is with the left turbocharger oil pipe and hose assembly, which may deteriorate from excess heat and leak oil. Leaking oil in the presence of high exhaust temperatures increases the risk of an engine compartment fire and can lead to injury.

As a fix, dealers will replace the left turbocharger oil pipe and hose assembly, as necessary, for free. Kia will begin sending owner notification letters April 26, but those with further questions in the meantime can call the company at 800-333-4542 (recall number SC300), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
