Faulty airbags cause large recall for Kia

Posted under Car Accidents

The Associated Press has released information regarding a large recall surrounding Kia Rios, due to airbag problems.

The recall affects Kia Rio models that were built between February 20, 2005 and December 9, 2007.  The safety recall is focused on a problem with the front passenger airbag detection sensor. Apparently, the sensor can break, and therefore fail to detect if a child is in the passenger seat.

If the vehicle were to be involved in an accident, the faulty airbag system would cause the airbag to become inflated, and potentially cause serious injury to a child. The front passenger air bags are not supposed to be inflated if a child is occupying that seat. Kia dealers have said that they will fix the sensor system beginning in July.
