What are the defects?

The flexible steel cable connected to the seat belts on the outboard side of the front seats may fatigue and separate from the seat belt, resulting in the seat belt not restraining the occupant properly.

What are the hazards?

If the occupant is not properly restrained, there is an increased risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.

What should consumers do?

Volvo will contact affected owners in writing to advise that replacement parts are not expected to be available until after October 2020 and how to secure the front seat belt while waiting for parts to arrive. When parts become available, affected owners should book their vehicle in to have the seat belt fasteners replaced.
