During an accident the consumer's seat belt released and the air bags did not deploy. Kia sent the consumer a letter stating that its engineers designed airbags to only deploy in severe accidents where the risk of serious injury or death was substantial. The consumer requested information on whether or not any lawyer is pursuing any cases against Kia.
