Volvo Recall Includes 2.1 Million Vehicles, No 2020 Models

No new 2020 Volvo models are included in the recall announced today

  • Volvo announces its largest recall ever with 1.2 million models impacted


Volvo announced a recall on 2.1 million vehicles worldwide today, the largest recall in its history.

The problem involves a steel wire connected to the seat belt that can wear over time in certain situations. The wire can tear which would prevent the seat belt from offering full protection in a crash.

No injuries were reported. Volvo called the recall a preventative measure to avoid problems in the future.

The recall concerns Volvo S60, V60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70, and S80 models from 2006 to 2019. No new 2020 Volvo models are included in the recall.

No specific number of recalled vehicles was given for Canada or the US.
