Airbag and brake defects cause Kia to issue national recalls

Posted under automotive defect attorneys

Two separate motor vehicle malfunctions have been identified by Kia, and have caused the automobile company to issue national recalls.

The first recall was caused by a faulty airbag detection system in the 2006 to 2008 Kia Rios. This defect could cause children in the front seat of the car to not be recognized by the airbag sensor, and therefore could cause them harm in a potential car accident. The airbag defect recall that was issued involved 73,000 vehicles.

The second recall was focused around the Kia Borrego SUV models. This recall came after a fault in the brake system was detected. The brake mount has been deemed weak, and could potentially break in a car accident. Approximately 21,900 Borrego models that were manufactured between 2008 and 2009 were recalled.
