2016 Volvo XC90 Recalled Due To Airbag Trouble

Written By:

The Volvo XC90 has been recalled due to airbag trouble. Volvo Cars North America is recalling 3,911 2016 model XC90 SUVs.

The reason for this recall is that the third row airbags may not inflate fully, which can cause injuries in case of an accident.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "Under inflated airbags may not fully protect third-row occupants, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash."

According to Volvo documents filed with NHTSA, the stop sale order for the XC90 SUV went into effect on the 4th of August.

Volvo will make necessary modifications to the D-pillar interior panels for the airbags to inflate fully in the third row and the recall is expected to begin on the 14th of September.

The models built between January 27, 2015 to July 10, 2015 are the ones that will be recalled and Volvo has said that there are no reports of injuries, crashes or fatalities due to this problem.
