Kia recalls sedans, minivans for air bag flaw Kia recalls over 500K vehicles, says air bags might not inflate

Included are the 2010 through 2013 Forte, 2011 through 2013 Optima, and Sedona and Optima Hybrid minivans made in 2011 and 2012.

This recall is related to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation launched on March 16 of this year into Hyundai and Kia vehicles where, in six incidents, the airbags failed to deploy.

A Kia recall was issued on Friday as some of the company's vehicles have issues with their airbags that may prevent them from getting deployed. Owners will be notified starting from the 18th of June.

The safety agency also said that electrical overstress appeared to be the root cause in a 2016 recall by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV of 1.4 million US vehicles for air bag non-deployments in significant frontal crashes.

Very few such spectrographs exist around the world (mostly in the U.S. and in the Europe) that can do such precise measurements. However, calculations suggest that the heavy elements, ice, silicates, and iron content are 60-70 % of the total mass.

Kia said in the NHTSA release that it is still working on a remedy with the recall set to begin on July 27. According to the NHTSA, the airbag control module in the affected cars were manufactured by German auto parts-maker ZF Friedrichshafen AG. NHTSA said in March that it was aware of six serious crashes in which air bags failed to deploy in frontal crashes, including four in 2011 model Hyundai Sonatas and two in 2012 and 2013 Kia Forte vehicles.

The agency says four crashes occurred in Sonatas and two happened in Fortes.

ZF also supplies air bag computers to other manufacturers which it did not identify, but said each one is "designed to a customer's particular vehicle". Kia says there are no injuries or fatalities associated with this issue.
