I received notice of a RECALL on my 2017 EX NIRO HYBRID (bought in FEB 2017) for a check of Power Control Relay. I think check and replace.

Issue is over heating could cause fire at rear seat.

I made appointment for with KIA Dealer (Rusty Wallace on Alcoa Hwy in TN) for January 30, 2023.

I can't find the letter (Don't Know where I put it), but as I remember it said some symptoms are an alarm or can't start the car.

It is a "recall of previous recall" for 2017 and 2018 HEV, NHTSA # 22V836 and supersedes previous recall # 18V1666 (KIA # SC168) concerning overheating of power relay located under the rear seat.
