Volvo Recall of Certain Model Year 2012 S60, XC60, S80, and SC70 Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—March 2, 2012.

Summary:  Volvo is recalling certain model year 2012 S60, XC60, S80 and XC70 vehicles manufactured from May 16, 2011, through October 6, 2011.  In these vehicles, the wire harness under the front seats may have not been attached properly to the seat frame.  As a result, when the seats are moved to adjust the seating position, the wire harness may get pulled, causing it to disconnect.

Consequence:  In the event of crash, the front and/or side impact air bags may deploy improperly or not at all, increasing the risk of injury.  Also, the lap belt pretensioner may not deploy.

Remedy:  Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, secure the seat wire harness.  This service will be performed free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin on March 30, 2012.  Owners may contact Volvo Cars at 800-458-1552.

Notes: The Volvo Recall Campaign Number is 250.  Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY: 800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
