Kia, Hyundai, Mercedes issue safety recalls

NEW YORK — Kia Motors is recalling nearly 52,000 Soul hatchbacks from the 2014 model year because the steering system may fail, the automaker said in a report posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

The pinion plug on the steering gear assembly had “an improper application of thread-locking adhesive,” Kia said.

In other actions, Hyundai is recalling almost 2,100 Sonata sedans from the 2015 model year because a problem with a wiring harness can result in a sudden lack of power assist to the steering and an inability to move the transmission lever from the park position, the automaker said in a report posted on the safety agency’s website.

Mercedes-Benz is recalling about 300 of its 2014 SL and SLK models because of a problem with air bags supplied by Takata Corp., according to a report posted on the agency’s website.
