A software error in the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system may cause the brake assist function not to engage as expected. As a result, the system may not detect another vehicle standing in front of the moving car, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Kia Optima models affected by this recall are from model years 2019 and 2020.
