Kia Rio Airbag Recall

Air bag sensor problem causes Kia to recall nearly 73,000 vehicles.

The AP (6/6) reports, "Kia Motors America is recalling nearly 73,000 Rio small cars to fix a problem with the front-passenger air bag." The AP reports that the "sensor inside the front passenger seat can crack and fail to detect whether a child is sitting in the seat," which, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, could result in the air bag inflating in a crash and hurting the child. The AP adds that this "recall affects cars from the 2006 to 2008 model years." Also reporting this is Reuters (6/6, Klayman).
