Kia started a program to restate the fuel economy ratings for some of our vehicles. The vehicles affected include: 2011-2012 model year Optima Hybrids, 2012-2013 model year Rios, Souls and Sportages, and certain 2012-2013 model year Sorentos equipped with GDI engines.
If a vehicle you own is included, we invite you to visit the site to learn how Kia is addressing this issue—which includes compensating current and former owners for fuel costs associated with MPG rating adjustments. Kia Motors has also announced that it has entered into a preliminary settlement agreement with attorneys representing owners of affected vehicles. The site also provides information about that preliminary settlement.
