Kia is recalling more than 500,000 cars and minivans in the US because the air bags could fail in a crash.
In total, the two Korean automakers have now recalled almost 1.1 million US vehicles to address the issue. NHTSA said in March that it was aware of six serious crashes in which air bags failed to deploy in frontal crashes, including four in 2011 model Hyundai Sonatas and two in 2012 and 2013 Kia Forte vehicles. One Forte crash happened in Canada.
