Recall Alert: Volvo Faulty Seats

December 6th, 2010

Volvo Recalls Most 2009-11 Models Due To Faulty Seats

Just a week after the automaker
issued a recall on most of its 2011 lineup because of engine stalling issues, Volvo has announced yet another major recall, this time due to faulty seats. The recall affects certain 2009, 2010 and 2011 model year S40, S60 and V50 vehicles, as well as some 2010 and 2011 model year XC60 crossovers.

The affected vehicles are those equipped with power front passenger seats. Apparently, the seat rail’s detection system was manufactured incorrectly and may permit the passenger to move the seat forward beyond recommended levels. With the seat positioned this far forward there is increased risk of injury to the seat’s occupant in the event of a crash.

For no charge dealers will inspect the front passenger seat rails for an “end stop” and make any adjustments if necessary.

In total there are 7,420 vehicles affected and Volvo is yet to issue a customer notification schedule.
