    Kia has announced a voluntary recall for 4,358 units of the Kia Seltos. The company explained that the recall was prompted by a “potential error in the electronic oil pump controller, which may impact the performance of the electronic oil pump” in the SUV’s CVT gearbox. Kia says it is proactively reaching out to customers and replacing the faulty part in the affected models, which were manufactured between February 28 and July 13, 2023.

    This automatic gearbox, which Kia calls IVT, is available with the 115hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine in the Seltos; the midsize SUV is on sale with two more engines – a 116hp, 1.5-litre diesel and a 160hp, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol – each with its own automatic gearbox option. After Seltos prices were revised in January, the SUV is now priced from Rs 10.90 lakh- 20.30 lakh.

    In India, Kia has had previously issued recalls in October 2022 and in June 2023; both times for the Carens MPV. The Carens was first recalled for an airbag software issue, and then to update software on its instrument cluster.
