A small number of 2020 Kia Stinger owners will be returning to their dealerships to fix a problem affecting steering. The vehicles involved are equipped with 2.0L Turbo-GDI engines.

According to the safety report, a machine calibration issue may have resulted in an insufficient number of balls used within the Rack Mounted Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS) Assembly . Over time, the balls could become fatigued and fracture, allowing pieces to get stuck in the steering rack. If this happens drivers will notice difficulty steering or a complete loss of steering.

Kia dealers will correct the problem by replacing the MDPS Assembly. Kia’s number for this recall is SC193 and the NHTSA campaign number is 20V422.
