Kia Motors America (“Kia”) has recalled an estimated 27,030 model year certain 2017-2018 Kia Niro Hybrid Electric Vehicles. The Main Relay within the Power Relay Assembly (“PRA”) may have inadequate connections between its contacts, causing increased electrical resistance.

If damage is found, the PRA will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 23, 2018.
