If you're the owner of a 2010-2013 Kia Forte, 2011-2013 Kia Optima, 2011-2012 Optima Hybrid and Sedona minivan, you need to pay attention to this.

The airbag control unit may short circuit, preventing the front airbags and seat belt pretensioners from deploying in the event of a crash.

In total, over one-million vehicles have been recalled since the investigation was announced in March and Kia says it does not yet have a fix. Owners will be notified starting from the 18th of June.

Kia said in the NHTSA release that it is still working on a remedy with the recall set to begin on July 27.

"NHTSA's investigation should not have even been necessary", said David Friedman, director of cars and product policy and analysis at Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports. The agency noted a 2016 recall involving more than 1.4 million Fiat Chrysler cars and SUVs that had a similar problem causing the air bags not to deploy.

Four of the crashes involved 2011 Hyundai Sonatas and two involved 2012 and 2013 Kia Fortes. ZF-TRW also said the parts are made to auto manufacturers' specifications.

The agency says four crashes occurred in Sonatas and two happened in Fortes. Messages were Friday left seeking comment from NHTSA. The parts supplier issued a statement saying it's cooperating with the government's investigation, The Associated Press reported.

In May of a year ago, NHTSA opened an investigation into whether Hyundai and Kia moved quickly enough to recall more than 1.6 million cars and SUVs because the engines can stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
