  3. 2002 Kia Sportage ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM:FAN NHTSA Campaign #07V161000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 16, 2007
    • Vehicles Affected: 35,090

    Summary: On certain vehicles, the heat generated by the engine causes repeated bending 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.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the engine cooling fan with a fan made of improved material. The recall began on June 11, 2007. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #07V161000 »
