This summer, Kia recalled more than 500,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to potentially faulty airbags. The recalled vehicles feature an airbag control unit that may be susceptible to electrical stress during some frontal crashes. In other words, in some conditions, the airbag may not deploy during a frontal collision, leaving you unprotected. Raceway Kia’s service center is prepared to help you navigate whatever recall service you need, courtesy of our highly trained Kia technicians.
