Certain Kia Soul EVs manufactured from January 18, 2014, to September 30, 2015 are being recalled due to adhesive not being of suitable strength. The "adhesive used to secure the steering pinion gear to the steering gear assembly may have insufficient strength, and as a result, the pinion gear may separate from the steering gear assembly."
If the pinion gear did separate, total loss of steering would be the result.
