Kia Optima Hybrid Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on June 1, 2018

The vehicle air bags and seat belt pretensioners  are restraint devices that protect occupants in an accident. During a crash where deployment is needed, these restraint devices may fail to deploy due to a short circuit within the air bag control unit (ACU).  This would lead to increased risk of occupant injury.

Recall repairs on your Kia must be performed by a Kia dealership. Kia will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2018. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Kia dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle.
