Kia Recalls 507,000 Vehicles in U.S. for Air Bags That May Not Deploy

posted by Kari Steele -

Due to an electronic glitch that may prevent airbags from deploying, Kia announced today the recall of more than 507,000 vehicles in the United States. 

The recall covers 2010-2013 Kia Fortes, 2011-2013 Kia Optimas and 2011-2012 Kia Optima Hybrid and Sedona vehicles.  

Kia said the airbag control unit may short circuit because they may be susceptible to electrical overstress, adding there is no fix at the moment but they are working on it.

 Does this recall affect you?  How seriously do you take these notices?  Will you stop driving your car until there is a fix or just hope for the best?
