IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 23 -- Kia today announced a voluntary recall of 1998 and 1999 Sephia compact sedans to replace the fuel pump connectors. A total of 102,944 Sephias will be recalled due to poor connections that could cause the fuel pump to stop operating. If the fuel pumps stops operating, the engine will stall, which could result in an accident. Sephia owners are being asked by mail to bring their vehicle to a Kia dealership so the two fuel pump connectors can be replaced. The procedure will take less than two hours and will be done at no charge. Kia Motors America is the U.S. sales, marketing and service arm of Kia Motors Corp. of Seoul, South Korea.
