Kia Sedona Sliding Doors Out Of Control, Recall Issued

Share

Kia is recalling more than 500,000 cars and minivans in the US because the air bags could fail in a crash.

The recalls follow an announcement in March by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it was investigating why some airbags had failed to deploy in Kia vehicles and its affiliate Hyundai Motor Corp. after crashes in which four people were killed and another six injured involving the two automakers' vehicles.

Combined with a previous recall expansion by Hyundai, the affiliated automakers are recalling almost 1.1 million vehicles due to the problem, which has been linked to four deaths. The crash of the 2013 Forte occurred in Canada.

But hey, all the pieces of the puzzle are here and we can only hope that Google decides to bring back the convenience feature. And if this is actually an early prototype of the phone, it's possible the final product could end up looking very different.

Kia says in government documents that a short circuit can develop in an air bag control computer.

Both automakers say they're working on a fix.

"Kia is now evaluating a remedy for this recall". In April, Hyundai recalled an additional 425,000 US vehicles to address the same issue.

He said he acted after "careful consideration" and with the "approval of the President of the United States". The new challenge comes six years after the Supreme Court's divided ruling that the ACA is constitutional.

Hyundai's recall includes about 580,000 Sonata sedans from 2011 to 2013 and Sonata Hybrids from 2011 to 2012. Kia said it would notify owners by July 27, while Hyundai said its notification runs from April 20 to June 15.

The Kia Sedona will have to head back as NHTSA reports that there is an issue with the sliding doors that might cause injuries to the driver or passenger. The safety agency said at the time it had reports of six front-end crashes with significant damage to the cars.

ZF said on Friday that it has worked with Kia and "continues to cooperate and support NHTSA and its customers in the investigation".
