A Kia recall for 410,619 vehicles was made this week for 2017, 2018, 2019 models including KIA Sedonas, Souls, Soul EVs, Fortes and Forte Koup due to defective air bags.
The automaker learned their air bags may not deploy as intended in the event of a collision so they issued a recall in Kia models made between 2017 and 2019.
Additionally, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received 13 customer complains and Kia had about 1,000 warranty claims. The NHTSA instructed dealerships to inspect the vehicles and make any necessary repairs at no charge to consumers.
Meanwhile, Kia will alert owners to the air bag recall by letter after March 21, 2022.
Fortunately, there are no reports of injuries or deaths due to the malfunctioning Kia air bags in these Kia vehicles.
