What You Need to Know About the Kia Class Action Lawsuit
Kia owners may be alarmed to hear about the class action lawsuit filed against the company. This lawsuit alleges that certain Kia models have defective engines that can lead to catastrophic failures and potentially endanger the lives of drivers and passengers. If you are a Kia owner, it is important to understand the details of the lawsuit and how it may affect you.
The lawsuit was filed in 2017 and includes owners of certain Kia models with Theta II engines, including the Kia Optima, Sorento, Sportage, and Soul. The plaintiffs claim that Kia knew about the defects in these engines but continued to manufacture and sell the vehicles anyway. The defects, which can include engine seizures, misfires, and stalling, can cause a dangerous loss of control on the road and potentially cause accidents. The plaintiffs seek compensation for financial losses, injuries, and wrongful deaths related to the engine defects.
