Volvo is recalling certain model year 2013 S60 and XC60 vehicles. A manufacturing defect within the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) control unit may lead to an inadvertent deployment of the seat belt pretensioner and/or inflatable curtain.
If the seat belt pretensioner and/or inflatable side curtain deploy without cause, the driver could be distracted and the driver’s visibility could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
These vehicles have not been sold and the SRS control unit will be replaced prior to the cars being sold. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.
