Volvo Cars is recalling 112 2017-model year S60, S60CC, V60, V60 Cross Country and XC60 vehicles because their air bags may not deploy when necessary, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recalled vehicles have driver and front passenger seat side-mounted side air bags with inflator initiators that may fail to ignite during a crash, NHTSA said. As a result, the vehicles don’t comply with all federal safety standards.
Volvo dealers will inspect and, if needed, replace the front seat side air bags. There will be no charge for this service.
The recall is expected to begin March 31. Vehicle owners can reach Volvo customer service at (800) 458-1552.
Volvo's number for this recall is R89712. The recall is an expansion of an earlier one (16V-918).
