Vehicles Affected: Approximately 377,000 model-year 2011-13 Kia Sorento SUVs manufactured between Oct. 19, 2009, and Jan. 31, 2013

The Problem: If excessive force is applied to the gearshift lever, the brake-shift interlock mechanism may chip or crack allowing the transmission to be shifted out of Park without the brake pedal being depressed. This could allow the vehicle to be unintentionally shifted out of Park, allowing it to roll, which could result in a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake-shift interlock mechanism for free.

What Owners Should Do: Kia will begin notifying owners on Nov. 24. Owners can call the automaker at 800-333-4542 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
