Kia is recalling about 65,000 vehicles in Canada and more than 507,000 in the United States because an electronic glitch may prevent airbags from deploying in the event of a crash.

The two Korean automakers have now recalled almost 1.1 million USA vehicles to address the issue.

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 automaker says the air bag control unit may short circuit because they may be susceptible to electrical overstress, preventing the frontal air bags from deploying.

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.

A safety advocate questions the delay between the Hyundai and Kia recalls. Kia said it would notify owners by July 27, while Hyundai said its notification runs from April 20 to June 15. The safety agency said at the time it had reports of six front-end crashes with significant damage to the cars. Those include the 2011 through 2013 Sonata midsize auto and the 2011 and 2012 Sonata Hybrid.

NHTSA opened an investigation into the Hyundai-Kia air bag issue in March. Kia's number for this recall is SC165.
