Volvo Car USA is recalling 377 2017-model year S60 and S60 Cross Country, V60 and V60 Cross Country, and XC60 vehicles because their air bags may not deploy properly during a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vehicles at issue were manufactured from Aug. 16, 2016, through Oct. 21, 2016. They have driver and front-passenger seat side-mounted side air bags with inflator initiators that may fail to ignite during a crash. As a result, these air bags don’t comply with all federal safety standards, NHTSA said.

Volvo dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front-seat side air bags. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners can reach Volvo customer service at (800) 458-1552. Volvo’s number for this recall is R89712.
