733 diesel Kia Sportage, Ceed, and ProCeed vehicles are being recalled in Greece

Kia is recalling 733 diesel-powered Sportage, Ceed, and ProCeed vehicles in Greece due to a potential defect in the vacuum/oil pump filter. This defect could lead to malfunction in the pump, resulting in inadequate oil supply and insufficient pressure in the brake booster circuit.

As a result, there is a possibility of increased braking distance under normal driving conditions, which poses a risk of accidents. Therefore, a precautionary inspection of the vacuum pump filter is deemed necessary, and if required, the vacuum pump itself will be replaced.

The recall affects 644 Sportage vehicles produced between November 2018 and August 2020, 85 Ceed vehicles produced between November 2018 and September 2020, and 4 ProCeed vehicles produced between February 2019 and January 2020.

Thus far, there have been no reported accidents related to this issue. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified personally and in writing via registered mail. They will be instructed to schedule an appointment with their nearest authorized Kia repair network, located throughout Greece, for the inspection of the filter and the potential replacement of the vacuum pump.

For more information or clarification, consumers are urged to contact the Technical Department of Kia Hellas A.B.E.E. at 210 5507215 (contact person: Ms. Maria Katerziadou).
