Kia Recalls 2007 and 2008 Sorento SUVs for Airbag Fix

2007 and 2008 Kia Sorento SUVs for a possible malfunction in passenger side airbag

The 2007 and 2008 Kia Sorento is being recalled due to the passenger side airbag Occupant Classification System (OCS) that may be defective. The OCS is responsible for turning off the airbag when a small adult, child, or child restraint are placed in the passenger seat.

The Problem: The OCS may malfunction and turn off the airbag even if an adult is seated in the passenger seat. The "Passenger Air Bag Off" light will illuminate on the center instrument panel. The passenger will not have the protection of the front airbag in a front end collision due to the OCS misclassification.
The Fix: Kia has already begun the recall under service campaign SC076. Kia will update the OCS programming free of charge. Owners may contact Kia at 800-333-4542.

Number of Vehicles Possibly Affected: An estimated 10,631 model year 2007 and 2008 Kia Sorento SUVs manufactured from June 15, 2006 to November 27, 2007.
