Kia is recalling more than 427,000 vehicles in the United States that have the ability to move while in park.

The warning, published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, covers all Tellurides manufactured between 2020 and 2023 as well as some 2024 models.

The center column and right front driveshaft in vehicles “may not be fully engaged due to suspected improper assembly by the supplier,” NHTSA warned.

Carfax says more than 3.7 million cars on the road have “parking outside” summonses.

Over time, “partial engagement can cause damage to the center column splines,” which could “result in unintended vehicle movement while parked if the parking brake is not engaged,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The recall was initiated after a “review of vehicle and supplier production records,” according to regulators.
