Volvo Recalls Vehicles Over Air Bag Problems

volvo e1287587235828 Volvo Recalls Vehicles Over Air Bag ProblemsVolvo Cars of America is recalling almost 10,000 vehicles to fix front air bag systems that may not deploy in a crash. Volvo says the recall affects certain S80 sedans and XC70 crossover vehicles from the 2010-2011 model year and model year 2010 V70 wagons.

The automaker says there could be a problem with a wiring connector in the air bag system that might prevent the front air bag from protecting the driver in a crash.

Volvo says dealers will fix the wiring connector free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late October.

Owners may contact Volvo at (800) 458-1552.
