Kia Sedona EX: Side Airbag Sticker Hidden Inside

May 03, 2007

Here's something you don't see everyday. In fact, I've driven this Sedona several times over the past week and just noticed it. It's the side airbag warning sticker, and it tells you all the things you're not supposed to do because of the side airbags. I find myself in a conundrum on this location, because on one hand I hate the obligatory (and unnecessary) airbag warning stickers that litter the average new-car cabin.

On the other hand, putting the sticker in the crevis between the driver's door and the dash hardly seems like an effective way to warn people.

Of course the warnings are as pointless as ever. "Do not use any accessory seat covers." "Do not install any accessories on the seat or near the side airbags." This one actually surprised me: "Do not use excessive force on the side of the seat." I want to know how "excessive force" is defined and how you use it on the side of the seat.

On second thought, no I don't.
