THE UNITED STATES – July 13, 2020 – According to an online news report on caranddriver.com, Volvo is expected to recall over 2 million Volvo motor vehicles worldwide due to the risk of the front-seats not adequately securing its passengers. The models include 2006–2019 S60/S60L/V60/XC60, V70/XC70, S80, and S80L Volvo models. Volvo discovered a cable made of steel that anchored the front seat belts to the car’s frame could weaken, leading to failure during an accident.
Volvo has initiated a recall for more than 300,000 motor vehicles in the United States to fix a steel cable connecting the front seat belts to the vehicle frame that may prematurely wear out and break when the vehicle is in an accident. The defect makes the seat belts incapable of restraining the front seat passenger. The steel cable is manufactured by Autoliv.
A Volvo spokesperson affirmed to CarandDriver.com that Volvo is not cognizant of any accident injuries caused by the cable problem.
Volvo will contact affected owners, and the parts can be replaced at no charge by the Volvo dealer. The fix will begin on August 25, 2020, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website. Owners may also visit the NHTSA website and conduct a search for their motor vehicle to see if the vehicle is affected by this recall.
