2007 Kia Rio ProblemsSoftware Update Available Which May Correct Transmission Issues
Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination.

2007 Kia Rio RecallsThe Front Passenger Airbag May Deploy with a Child in the Seat
The front passenger seat occupant sensor mat can experience fatigue cracking. If sufficient cracking occurs, the occupant classification system (OCS) will not be able to detect whether a child passenger is in the seat and the airbag will deploy during a crash. Deployment of the airbag with a child in the seat increases the risk of injury to the child. Dealers will replace the OCS seat sensor mat to correct this concern. The Kia recall number is SC097.
