In the event of a vehicle crash, if the child seat is not properly installed, personal injury or death could occur.

Child Seat

Summary
Certain passenger vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 225, 'child restraint anchorage systems.' Certain child restraint anchors will not fully latch onto the lower latch anchors located between the rear seat back and rear seat cushion because of interference between the child seat anchors and a metal wire located in the frame of the rear seat back. Until the recall repair is completed, follow the instructions provided by your child seats manufacturer on how to properly install the child seat with your vehicle's rear safety belts rather than using the latch system.
Actions
Dealers will replace the lower anchors free of charge. The recall began on January 30, 2006. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542.
