In the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is the regulatory authority empowered by the Department of Transportation to execute its stated mission to “save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce vehicle-related crashes.” The NHTSA works alongside every major auto manufacturer including Kia to ensure that every vehicle and all of its components promote the highest level of safety for motorists. If a vehicle or one of its parts is found to have increased safety risk, the vehicle and its potentially defective component can be included in a safety recall. When a safety recall is published, the manufacturer is responsible for notifying owners via mail.
