Approximately 307,900 model-year 2008-16 Volvo V70 wagons and XC70 SUVs; model-year 2007-16 S80 sedans; model-year 2011-18 S60 sedans and V60 wagons; model-year 2016-18 S60 Cross Country sedans; model-year 2014-20 S60L sedans; model-year 2009-15 S80L sedans; model-year 2009-16 XC60 SUVs; and model-year 2015-18 V60 Cross Country wagons are being recalled due to seat belt issues. The steel cable that anchors the front seatbelts to the car can become weakened over time, potentially reducing the seatbelt’s restraining ability and increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Volvo began notifying owners on Aug. 25. Owners can call the automaker at 800-458-1552 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To remedy the issue, dealers will replace the seat belt anchor cable.

Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
