According to a certain media report, Kia Seltos diesel has been recalled in India over a faulty fuel pump. The compact SUV's manufactured between the dates of 1st October 2019 to 13th March 2020 would be a part of this recall. As per the document shown here, there are high chances that the fuel pump that was installed in these vehicles may have developed a small hole at the bottom or a crack in the fuel pump assembly. This could result in more vibrations, reduce the car’s pickup, or create a problem while starting the vehicle.
