In the previous month, Kia also kicked off a similar service campaign for its customers. The campaign was exclusively provided for Kia Seltos diesel models which were produced from October 2019 to March 2020 due to a faulty fuel pump. After receiving feedback about the issue, Kia has conducted inspections for repair or replacement if needed. However, Kia did not refer to it as a recall but a “Service Action Campaign” which was provided for better experiences for customers.
