Kia Told To Recall 100,331 Units Of Carnival I

SEOUL March 31,2003; Dow Jones reported that the South Korean government has asked Kia Motors Corp. to recall 100,331 units of its Carnival I mini van from the local market due to defects in the blow-by-gas hose and engine oil-level gauge, the Ministry of Construction and Transportation said Monday.

The flawed components could cause an excessive injection of engine oil into the engine, resulting in damage to the engine, it said.

The ministry said the cars to be recalled are those made between December 8, 1997 and September 22, 2000 in South Korea.

It said the recall will begin April 1 year and will last until Oct. 31, 2004.
