 Defect summaryKia motors america (kia) is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 kia sorento vehicles manufactured october 19, 2009, to january 31, 2013. In the affected vehicles, if excessive force is applied to the gear shift lever, the brake-shift interlock mechanism may chip or crack allowing the transmission being able to be shifted out of "park" without the brakes being depressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) number 114, "theft protection."
 Consequence summaryWithout requiring the brake to be pressed, the vehicle may be unintentionally shifted out of park, allowing it to roll, which may result in a crash.
 Corrective actionKia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake-shift interlock mechanism, free of charge. The recall began on november 9, 2015. Owners may contact kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is sc124.
