MY17 Volvo cars recalled over airbag issue

A recall of MY17 Volvo S60, V60 Cross Country, XC60, V40, V40 Cross Country and XC90 cars and SUVs is underway after a possible airbag issue was identified.

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.
