Issue: Kia Canada is conducting a Product Improvement Campaign that provides an update to the engine control module to detect potential problems before an engine fails.

An engine failure may cause a sudden loss of power with an inability to restart.

Safety Risk: A sudden loss of engine power could increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail.

Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to update the software for the engine control module.

Note: Vehicles repaired under Service Campaign SC025 already have this software update.
