Recall Alert: Volvo
October 20, 2010
Separately, Volvo Cars said it is recalling nearly 10,000 vehicles over concerns that some airbags may not deploy as intended.
The recall covers 9,746 2010-11 S80 and XC70, 2011 XC60 and 2010 V70.
Volvo said there appeared to be "an intermittent fault in the driver's airbag clock spring wiring connector for the supplemental restraint system."
Volvo said it has received 142 reports worldwide over the condition. It first identified the issue in May as "potentially critical."
Volvo dealers will install a metal shim in the driver's airbag to fix the problem.
