I agree with Matt your car is probably still under warranty. Check out it has all Kia factory training information, recalls and service bulletins on it for free from Kia, great resource fro Kia owners and Kia mechanics.

wrong. there is a recall on certain kia rio's 2002-2008. if yours is one you should receive something in the mail this month

Sometimes this is caused by the sensor assembly in the steering wheel. Your car is very new, and I would imagine that your dealership would be happy help you with this--probably under warranty.
