Kia Motors has recalled 145,755 Optima sedans and Rondo crossover vehicles in the United States because of potentially faulty driver-side airbags. The model years affected are 2006-2008 Optimas and 2007-2008 Rondos. Kia Motors America, a unit of Kia Motors Corp, said it is not aware of any injuries or airbags not deploying because of the issue.
Affected are 95,569 Optimas and 50,186 Rondos. Kia, an affiliate of Hyundai Motor Co, said the clock spring contact assembly for the driver’s side air bag supplemental restraint system may become damaged over time, potentially causing the driver’s air bag not to deploy. The recall is to begin in March.
