Kia’s recall says driveshaft problems – due to suspected improper installation – are the cause.

This can lead to ‘unintended vehicle movement while parking if the parking brake is not engaged.’

This results in ‘unintentional vehicle movements increasing the risk of an accident.’

But the problem can be fixed with a software update. This ensures that the drive shaft engages properly.

Affected Telluride owners should take their vehicles to a Kia dealer for the update.

The Telluride’s spacious interior has made it popular with Americans since its launch in 2019.
