New Volvo Recalls Target Faulty Air Bag Systems [Video]

Volvo is taking on several different 2017 vehicle models due to air bag problems that could put occupants at risk.

According to Consumer Affairs, these vehicles could fail to deploy air bags when sustaining damage. The source said these issues could represent a lack of compliance with multiple standards.

The main thing this recall affects is the passenger side air bag. Since the inflator igniters in these vehicles might not properly prompt the air bag, the fix will replace them entirely. This should leave the vehicles with better protection systems. The affected models include Volvo S60 and V60 vehicles, as well as the Cross Country versions of each of these and the XC60 vehicles.

Many of these vehicles were also involved in a previous recall pertaining to seat belt issues announced last November.
