Recall Alert: 2013 Volvo S60, XC60


(Cars.com)

Volvo is recalling nine model-year 2013 versions of the S60 sedan and XC60 SUV due to problems with the supplemental restraint system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

A faulty supplemental restraint system control unit could cause the seat belt pretensions and/or side airbags to inadvertently deploy. This could cause an accident.

Volvo claims none of these vehicles have been sold yet, and the issue will be fixed before the cars go on sale. Owners can call Volvo at 800-458-1552 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
