Kia Motors is recalling about 35,000 Soul and Sorento vehicles to fix wiring in the interior lighting panels that could lead to fires.
The recall affects about 24,000 Kia Soul compact wagons from the 2010 model year and more than 11,000 Kia Sorento sedans from the 2011 model year.
Kia told the government that some wiring harnesses located in the Soul's front door trim panels and the Sorento's front and rear door trim panels may have been improperly soldered, which could lead to an electrical short.
The South Korean company said the short in the wiring harnesses could cause fires. No accidents or injuries have been reported.
Owners will be notified later this month and the wiring harnesses will be replaced.
