Kia Motors Australia — Kia JF Optima MY2018-2020
What are the defects?
Due to an error in the Frontal Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) software, the braking assist function may fail when the vehicle approaches a stationary vehicle.
What are the hazards?
If the FCA fails to recognise a stationary vehicle, the braking assist may not activate during a frontal collision, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Affected owners will be contacted by direct mail. Owners should contact their nearest Kia Motors Australia dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
For more information, consumers should contact Kia Motors Australia on 13 15 42.
