Each year, thousands of Americans are involved in car accidents across the nation. Now, a scary new recall is being reported.
Kia is recalling half a million vehicles in the United States due to potential airbag problems. As all drivers know, airbags are one of the best ways to stop injuries once a crash has occurred.
"Kia is recalling 507,000 vehicles in all, including 2010-2013 Kia Fortes, 2011-2013 Kia Optimas, and 2011-2012 Kia Optima Hybrid and Sedona vehicles. In April, Hyundai recalled 425,000 Sonata vehicles in the U.S. over the issue. This followed the recall of 154,000 Sonatas two months earlier, in connection with the same problem," reported Digital Trends.
At this time, Kia is not reporting a solution for the issue. The Korean based company is working on the issue and said they will notify all owners once they have a remedy for the problem.
"As to whether it’s OK to continue driving one of the affected vehicles, Kia spokesperson James Bell told Reuters that if the company does not have a remedy by July 27 or if any customer feels unsafe in their vehicle, the company 'will provide a rental car until the repair has been completed,'" according to reports.
