Volvo recalls over two million cars worldwide due to seatbelt issue
10 models of Volvo car are affected by the mass recall.
Swedish car manufacturer Volvo has recalled a little under 2.2 million cars (2,183,701 in total) worldwide due to a seatbelt safety issue affecting 10 models of Volvo cars.
According to a Volvo statement, the recall is “a preventive safety recall to avoid future issues” and there have been no reports of accidents related to the issue to date.
The issue, Volvo says, is related to a steel cable connected to the front seat belt on affected models, which can wear out over time depending on the behaviour of those using it.
The affected models are the S60, S60L, S60CC, V60, V60CC, V70, XC70, S80, S80L and XC60, all produced between 2006 and 2019.
In a statement to JOE, Volvo Ireland confirmed that 7,776 vehicles in Ireland are affected by the recall and that owners of all concerned cars will be contacted by Volvo Car Ireland to ask them to contact their Volvo retailer to have their cars corrected free of charge.
