RepairPal Expert Overview
The air bags mounted in the sides of the front seats may not deploy when needed in an accident due to a failure of the igniters within the air bag assemblies. This would increase risk of occupant injury in a crash.
Recall repairs on your Volvo must be performed by a Volvo dealership. Volvo will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable for this notification is not available as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Volvo dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The igniters in the front seat side air bag assemblies may not function in a crash. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the front seat side air bags free of charge to resolve the concern.
