Kia Australia has issued a recall for 2241 examples of its Carnival people mover with the Model Year 2020 (MY20), due to an incorrectly tightened battery terminal.
The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the loose battery terminal could "increase the resistance to the alternator and may lead to heat being generated, which could result in a fire within the engine compartment".
The brand says there are no known instances of the issue affecting Australian owners, and the recall is a precautionary measure.
