By necessity, seatbelts and the mechanical components like the retractor and pre-tensioner (which tightens the belt when vehicle sensors indicate a crash might be imminent) are built tough, but like any in a car, a poorly-installed seatbelt won’t do much good. The worry here is that retaining plate could break in a crash, come free from the car’s structure and become a dangerous projectile, potentially injuring the car’s occupants. Kia’s dealers will inspect and replace the seatbelt assembly as necessary.
