Volvo Car USA is recalling 377 model year 2017 S60 and S60 Cross Country, V60 and V60 Cross Country, and XC60 vehicles manufactured August 16, 2016, through October 21, 2016.
The vehicles have driver and front passenger seat side mounted side airbags (SAB) with inflator initiators that may fail to ignite during a crash. As such, the vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection" and number 214, "Side Impact Protection."
If the inflator initiator fails to ignite, the airbag will not deploy, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front seat side air bags, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-458-1552. Volvo's number for this recall is R89712.
