Kia has announced a recall for its 'VQ' Carnival, across the 2011 to 2014 model years.

Affecting 12,123 vehicles in Australia, the recall is regarding the potential for a small heat-induced crack to appeal in the fuel rail of petrol models.

In the event a crack appears, a fuel leak could result, which could lead to fire and/or a leak onto the road, increasing risk of harm to occupants and other road users.

Kia Australia is contacting affected owners, but owners are also urged to contact a Kia dealer for inspection and repair. A list of affected models, ordered by VIN, can be found here.

Parts are not expected to become available until July 2020.
