Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued a recall on certain 2005 to 2007 Kia Spectra models with fuel tank straps that could be affected by road salt.

The recall affects 21,780 vehicles.

On certain vehicles operated in areas of heavy road salt usage during winter months, the fuel tank straps could corrode and fail, allowing the fuel tank to fall to the ground. Dealers will replace the straps with zinc-coated versions.
