2017 Kia Sportage Radiator Leak
Another significant source of worry for owners of the 2017 Kia Sportage
was the engine cooling system. The cooling system is made
up of many parts, including the thermostat, water pump, and
radiator. Any one of these parts failing alone or all of them failing
at once might result in problems with engine cooling.
The Kia Sportage's radiator was the part that often gave rise to issues.
The engine would overheat as a consequence of the coolant leaking out.
Two fires were recorded out of the large number of vehicles recalled, however no injuries or accidents occurred.
