Jeong Sung Eun resigns from Kia Motors over recalls

The vice chairman of Kia Motor Corporation, Jeong Sung Eun has seemingly resigned as a result of a large recall by the automaker.
It is reported that Eun stepped down on September 3rd not long after a global recall sent 85,900 Kia vehicles back to the factory due to apparent faulty wiring, with potential vehicle fires being the worse case scenario.

Around 35,000 Soul and Sorento models were impacted by this recall in the States. The company is also recalling 18,147 Sorento, Borego and Soul models in China for bad circuit boards.

Before becoming the Vice Chairman of Kia, Eun was president of the company’s production division. It is still unclear who will take over Eun’s position within the company or what the former Vice Chairman will do now that he left his job.
