Volvo is recalling about 74,000 U.S. vehicles for an issue that might cause a seat belt to inadequately restrain passengers in a crash. The recall impacts each Volvo S60, S90, V60, XC60 and XC90 vehicles from the 2016-17 model years.

The issue is caused by a connecting pin in the seat belt buckle, which could cause the seat belt to work inadequately during a crash.
