Kia recalls over 500K vehicles, says air bags might not inflate

Kia recalls sedans, minivans for air bag flaw

Kia will recall more than 500,000 cars due to an air bag flaw by the end of July, an NHTSA release shows. That's a heck of a lot of vehicles for a single recall, but it concerns a very serious issue.

The air bag flaw is tied to a federal investigation into four fatalities and six injuries in Kia and its affiliate, Hyundai, concerning crashes where the air bags failed to deploy, the Wall Street Journal reported. The company does not have a fix for the issue yet but it is working with its supplier on the issue. Also covered are Optima Hybrid and Sedona minivans from 2011 and 2012. Hyundai has said it will notify owners through mid-June.

"NHTSA's investigation should not have even been necessary", said David Friedman, director of cars and product policy and analysis at Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports.

In documents from the investigation, NHTSA said it understands that the Kia Fortes under investigation use similar air bag control computers made by ZF-TRW. The crash of the 2013 Forte occurred in Canada.

Certain types of frontal crashes can cause the airbag control unit to short circuit. Messages were Friday left seeking comment from NHTSA.

In May of past year, NHTSA opened an investigation into whether Hyundai and Kia moved quickly enough to recall more than 1.6 million cars and SUVs because the engines can stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
