Kia Motors America recalled 142 model year 2021 Telluride, K5 and Forte vehicles due to potential safety risk.
The Occupant Classification and Detection System (OCS/ODS) unit may not detect the presence of a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.
Deployment of the front passenger airbag, with a child in that seat, can increase the risk of injury to the child.
Kia will notify owners, while dealers will replace the OCS/ODS unit, free of charge.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
