PhotoVolvo Car USA is recalling 5,529 model year 2017 XC90, S90 and V90 Cross Country vehicles.

The bolts that secure the Inflatable Curtain (IC) airbags in place may break, possibly resulting in the IC airbag deploying improperly in the event of a crash. As, such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 226, "Ejection Mitigation."

If the IC airbags do not deploy properly in the event of a crash, the vehicle occupants have an increased risk of injury.

What to do

Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the bolts, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 1, 2017.

Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-458-1552. Volvo's number for this recall is R89714.
