SEOUL, Dec. 1 (Yonhap) -- Kia Motors Corp. and five overseas carmakers will recall over 18,000 vehicles in South Korea due to faulty parts, the transport ministry said Friday.

This is the latest in a series of recall orders issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to both domestic and foreign car manufacturers.

Kia Motors, Honda Motor Co., Citroen, Peugeot, Iveco and MAN Truck & Bus plan to recall nine different models totaling 18,124 units. The models include Kia's Mohave SUV, Citroen's C4 Cactus 1.6 Blue-HDi hatchback, and Honda's CBR1000RA motorcycle, the ministry said in a statement.

The problems include engine failure caused by oil leakage in the Mohave, lack of strength in C4 Cactus' engine compartment cover and the engine stalls in Honda's CBR100RA, the statement said.

Starting Friday, vehicle owners can visit designated repair and service centers to replace the parts free of charge, it said.
