Investigation of Engine Stalls in 2019-2021 Kia Soul Vehicles
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, is investigating the need for a potential class action related to engine stalling occurrences in 2019-2021 Kia Soul vehicles.
One of the main draws of purchasing a Kia Soul is its long-standing reliability. Loyal Kia drivers expect a smooth drive with all the newest tech to back it up for years to come. Unfortunately, reliability seems to have slipped in the most recent model years. Owners of 2019 to 2021 Kia Souls have complained about these vehicles suddenly stalling mid-drive. They describe the problem as a total loss of power while driving, requiring the driver to completely pull off the road, turn off the vehicle, and wait. After this occurs, the engine light may illuminate. The dangers of driving a vehicle with an engine that may suddenly fail speak for themselves.
Kia Has Remained Tight-Lipped Over the Issue
Kia has instituted a repair program without customer notification on in-warranty 2020 Kia Souls to “improve the logic of the Engine Control Unit (ECU)” but they have yet to directly address the engine stalling problems to the public. Although they are making some sort of engine repairs on certain Kia Soul vehicles, the details of these fixes are elusive, even to the vehicle owners.
To date, there is yet to be a recall on the 2019-2021 Kia Soul models across the board, potentially leaving thousands of dangerously faulty vehicles on the road nationwide.
