Volvo Car Group is recalling up to 10,000 of its luxury 2016 XC90 crossovers worldwide due to a potential problem with the vehicles’ trim panel that could prevent the air bags from deploying properly. All seven-seat model year 2016 XC90 cars worldwide will be included in the recall, which was prompted after the company discovered that the side air bag curtain in the crossovers’ third seat row may not function as intended. The Swedish carmaker blocks delivery of the crossovers for “a few days” until the problems have been corrected. The automaker said that it will modify the design of the panel surrounding the vehicles’ air bag curtains to ensure that the air bags inflate as intended. Elfstrom noted that the faulty part is the panel surrounding the air bag curtain, not the air bag itself. The recall will include approximately 2,000 cars in the U.S., 900 in Sweden and approximately 7,000 in Europe, Volvo said.
