The recall includes model years 2011-2013. Investigations into the defect began in August after Kia was contacted by an attorney, claiming that a child moved the gear shift out of park and the car rolled, causing injury.
Kia has plans to replace the defective interlock mechanism in all recalled vehicles. They say owners of recalled vehicles will be contacted directly, starting November 24th.
