In a damaged fuel pump, a hole is found on the lower end of the filter. In other cases, there can be a crack in the plastic at the cylindrical head of the filter. In either or both cases the fuel pump would be replaced under warranty at no extra cost from the consumer. If no damage is found, it will not be replaced.

The fault fuel pump would make the car vibrate more than usual, have problems in starting and/or reduce the car’s pickup. Owners of diesel Seltos have reported no proactive communication from the company’s side. They have come to know about this through customers who underwent the same procedure whilst visiting Kia service stations for regular servicing.
