Kia US to recall over 11,000 Optima cars over braking issues

Kia Motors Corp. will recall a total of 11,423 Optima vehicles of model year 2019 in the U.S. over concerns that a software error could cause the car's braking systems to fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

According to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, affected vehicles were equipped with Gamma 1.6L Turbo-GDI or Theta II 2.0L TurboGDI engines.

Starting Aug. 27, the South Korean carmaker's U.S. arm, Kia Motors America Inc. will recall the vehicles and dealers will update the related software, free of charge.

In January and February, Kia also recalled thousands of Optima, Sorento and Sportage models over defective fuel pipes.
