Volvo Car USA is recalling 29,697 model year 2016 XC90s manufactured January 27, 2015, to April 23, 2016.
The sunroofs on these vehicles have a switch on the overhead console that may not be adequately recessed to prevent the switch from being unintentionally pressed. When pressed, the sunroof may fully close. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."
If the switch is unintentionally pressed and the sunroof panel closes, there is an increased risk of occupant injury.
What to do
Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will perform a software upgrade that disables the auto-close function, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 20, 2016.
Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-458-1552 or by visiting http://Volvo.custhelp.com. Volvo's number for this recall is R89702.
