Kia Is Recalling 258,000 Optima Sedans Due to Loose Headliner Plates

Kia is set to recall nearly 258,000 units of its 2012-2013 model-year Optima sedan to address an issue with the headliner. In a collision, parts of it could break off and become projectiles inside.

The recall affects all 2012 and 2013 Optima vehicles manufactured at Kia's U.S. plant in Georgia between August 2011 and September 2013.

“The subject vehicles are equipped with headliner plates designed as part of the energy absorbing structure of the headliner. Under certain circumstances, the headliner plate(s) may detach from the headliner upon deployment of the side curtain airbag(s), increasing the risk of injury to an occupant.”
