2016 Kia Optima

Accidents happen. Whether a design flaw was found late in the process, some defect occurred in the manufacturing process, or something else, automakers have to make the decision to recall vehicles all the time. A 2016 Kia Optima recall was recently announced by Kia after the discovery of a problem with the airbag that caused the function not to deploy in the case of a collision, posing a major potential threat to drivers.

Affected Optima sedans were built between November 10th of last year and February 12, 2016. The frontal airbags are possibly missing a chemical enhancer which causes the second stage airbag to deploy improperly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “An airbag that inflates improperly increases the risk of injury.”
