Separation of the fan blade(s) can create a risk of personal injury.

Engine And Engine Cooling — Cooling System — Fan

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.
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.
