Airbag label issue sees 2017 Volvo XC90 recalled

MY17 Volvo XC90 SUVs with leather trim affected by recall…

A recall of current series Volvo XC90 SUVs has been initiated after it was found an airbag safety label may not have been fitted.

Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the recall affects only seven-seat Volvo XC90 vehicles with leather upholstery.

Those affected vehicles carry a VIN within the range - 105019 to 165329.

The recall notice advises that affected vehicles have inadvertently been built without the airbag label on the passenger side sun visor.

On those affected vehicles, there is no visible airbag label when the sun visor is folded down.

What are the hazards?

The occupant will not see an airbag warning label when the passenger side sun visor is lowered and be unaware of its presence.

Owners should contact their nearest Volvo dealer and make a booking to have the sun visor mirror lid on the passenger’s side only replaced.

The recall comes just days after the Volvo XC90 was also recalled over a potentially dangerous curtain airbag fault (details here).
