Kia Rio Recalls

Models : Kia Rio
Body, Interior & Misc., May 29, 2012
RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to interference with a metal wire inside the rear seat frame, the lower child restraint anchors should not be used. Owners are advised to follow the instructions provided with the child seat on how to properly install the child seat using the vehicle's rear seat belts rather than the LATCH system. If the child seat is not properly secured, personal injury or death could occur in a crash. Dealers will replace the lower anchors free of charge. This recall began January, 2006. The Kia recall number is SC057.
