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. Volvo spokesman Jim Nichols said the move is “mainly precautionary,” as no incidents have been reported. He said Volvo sent out a recall notice on Oct. 28. Volvo dealers have been instructed to inspect each of the impacted vehicles before selling them. He said each vehicle in inventory already has been inspected.
