Volvo Recalls New XC90 …
In certain vehicles equipped with seven seats, the side-curtain airbag for third-row passengers may not fully inflate. The defect increases risk of injury in a crash, however the issue has not been blamed for any injuries or deaths.
The company first became aware of the failures during routine crash testing for the European New Car Assessment Program. Engineers eventually traced the behavior to interference between the airbag and an interior trim panel on the D-pillars.
Service technicians have been instructed to modify the D-pillar panels to allow full inflation of the third-row airbags.
The issue affects approximately 3,900 vehicles sold in the US market.
