South Korean automaker, Kia is recalling 51,641 of its small Soul crossovers from the 2014 model year to fix a steering issue, USA Today has reported. A supplier in South Korea has used the wrong adhesive to lock the threads on a plug, which secures a pinion gear to the steering assembly and if it comes off, a loss of steering could cause the car to crash, said the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
