Recall roundup: 2013 Volvo S60 and Volvo XC60

The Swedish based automaker Volvo has recently announced a recall for the 2013 S60 and XC60 because of a problem with an airbag.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, only nine units of the 2013 Volvo S60 sport sedans and 2013 Volvo XC60 crossovers will be affected by this recall over-seas and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbag defect fixed. The NHTSA is saying that a manufacturing defect has been “spotted” in the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) control module and this may lead to an inadvertent deployment of the seat belt pretentioner or the inadvertent deployment of the inflatable side curtain airbag.

Volvo says that none of the affected units have been sold in the United States yet and they have been quarantined on dealer lots, expecting to be repaired. The SRS control unit will be completely replaced in order for the models to be sold to customers. Owners of the 2013 Volvo S60 and 2013 Volvo XC60 with any questions about this recall are advised to contact Volvo Cars of North America at 1-800-458-1552 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (campaign ID 12V439000).
