Volvo has announced a recall on approximately 2,300 model-year 2018-19 S90 sedans and XC60 SUVs due to seat belt issues. The driver and passenger front seat rail rear flange nuts may not have been installed during assembly, which could affect the front seat structure and position in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of an injury.
Volvo began notifying owners on May 17. 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 fix the problem, dealers will inspect the front seat rails for missing flange nuts, and install them as needed.
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.
