NHTSA Campaign ID:EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS
Manufacturer:Kia Motors America
Manufacture Dates:07/24/2018 - 09/17/2018
Potential Units Affected:1754

Defect Description:

Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain 2019 Kia Forte vehicles equipped with LED headlights. The headlights may not have been manufactured with the correct low beam aiming. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Consequence:

If the headlights are not properly aimed, the driver may have reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

Action:

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the headlight aiming and replace the headlights, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 30, 2018. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC171.
