The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
The ACCC recall notice advising that in the event of an accident, the airbag igniter may cause inadequate inflation of the driver, passenger and/or seat airbag units on the affected vehicles.
In an accident, this may cause the airbags to not inflate completely, reducing the level of protection for the driver and passengers.
Affected MY17 Volvo car/SUV owners will be contacted by direct mail and are urged to contact their local Volvo dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of their vehicle.
