Overheated Battery Plug Recall for Kia

2,209 Niro EV models from 2022 are being recalled by Kia. The car maker stated in the NHTSA report that the safety plug for a high-voltage battery could melt from overheating.

Owners of the impacted vehicles are being advised by the car maker not to charge their vehicles in a garage or any other covered structure until the recall repair is finished. Dealers will swap out the safety plug for free. Letters of recall notification are anticipated to be mailed on July 19. SC314 is Kia’s number for this recall.

Recall of Lamborghini Due to Hood Separation

2,133 Urus Performante and Urus S cars from the 2023–2024 model years are being recalled by Lamborghini. A separation or failure of the hood latch striker is possible.

When a car’s hood separates, it might hinder vision for the driver or create a hazard on the road, which raises the possibility of an accident.

Owners of the recalled cars can get an inspection, have the hood repaired, and have a striker support plate installed by going to their dealer. Every service will be rendered at no cost. On June 28, notification letters are anticipated to be sent. Owners can call 1-866-681-6276 to reach out to Lamborghini customer care. L636-R.02.24 is Lamborghini’s recall number.

Volkswagen is Recalling Certain Models Due to Display Issues

A total of 79,953 Volkswagen ID.4 vehicles from 2021–2023 are being recalled. Software problems can result in the instrument panel and center displays not booting up or resetting. Drivers risk losing their rearview camera image and speedometer data as a result. Crash risk may rise if a driver’s display is unable to display the image from a rearview camera or the vehicle’s speed.

According to the NHTSA analysis, these cars don’t meet the criteria of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 101, “Control and Displays,” and 111, “Rear Visibility.”

The car software will be updated at no cost to the dealers. On July 12, letters requesting recalls are anticipated to be sent. VW customer service can be reached by owners at 1-800-893-5298. The VW recall number is 919A.
