Problems solved during Kia’s recalls do not usually determine the reliability of the vehicle itself. Even the common-recalled model can be a good choice and vice versa.

However, it is good to be informed for what problems the manufacturer has recalled most often. At least to know whether the defect was fixed by the previous owner, when buying a second-hand car. You should check your vehicle VIN with your nearest Kia dealer using our special page.
