Among the 76 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Kia Motors AmericaKia Motors America (“Kia”), an Irvine, California establishment, has recalled an estimated 30,168 model year 2020 Telluride vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

The seat belt assemblies in the front passenger, second, and/or third row seats in the recalled vehicles may not tightly secure a child restraint system in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, the seatbelt for a passenger seated in the rear middle seating position might not be properly secured, which could increase the risk of an injury in the event of a crash.

Kia will notify registered owners and dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace any incorrect seat belt assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 30, 2019. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542 during normal business hours. Kia’s designation for this recall is SC181.
