Kia Recalls 2002 Sportage [05/08/2007]
Make / Models :           Model/Build Years:     
     Kia / Sportage       2002
 
Manufacturer : Kia Motors America, Inc.  
 
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 07V161000  Mfr's Report Date : APR 13, 2007
Component: Engine and engine cooling:cooling system:fan
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 35090
Summary:
 On certain vehicles, the heat generated by the engine causes repeated ending deformation of the polypropylene cooling fan including its retaining ring, which stresses the polypropylene thereby initiating cracking of the blades. The centrifugal forces generated by the rotation of the blades can cause the cracks to propagate until complete separation occurs. 
Consequence:
 Separation of the fan blade(s) can create a risk of personal injury.
Remedy:
 Dealers will replace the engine cooling fan with a fan made of improved material. The recall is expected to begin during june 2007. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542.
Notes:
 Kia recall no. Sc070. Customers may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
