14 127

Swedish car manufacturer Volvo has decided to recall about 68 thousands cars in Finland to repair a safety risk detected in the seat belts, reported the national broadcaster Yle quoting company sources.

The company announced to recall 2.1 million cars worldwide due to the detected safety risk.

The fault in the safety belt is detected in the steel cable, which can “suffer from fatigue” under certain conditions and become damaged, said the Yle report, referring to a statement of the manufacturer.

About 68,000 Volvo car-owners in Finland will get the notice for the repairment of their cars, mostly manufactured between 2007 and 2018.

The modifications will take place in about 10 different models, including the V60, V70, S60, S80, XC60, and XC70. The replacement will be free of cost.

“For these Volvo models, the front seat belt connector will be replaced either on one side or on both sides,” the Yle report quoted Volvo Car Finland Technical Services Director Jaana Kuivalainen as saying.

Kuivalainen, however, told the Yle that there is no urgency to repair the seat belt and the affected motorists can continue to drive their cars until the seat belt part has been replaced.

The owners of the recalled cars are known to Volvo Car Finland and will each of them will receive an invitation by post to bring their vehicle in for repair by authorised Volvo repair shops during the autumn, the Yle report added.

    Will the recall affect all Volvo car owners in Finland or only those with specific models?

      Hey MaggieSmith67, the recall will only affect Volvo car owners in Finland with specific models. Specifically, around 68,000 Volvo car-owners in Finland with cars mostly manufactured between 2007 and 2018 will receive notices for repairment. The recall includes modifications in about 10 different models, such as V60, V70, S60, S80, XC60, and XC70. The replacement of the front seat belt connector on one or both sides will be free of cost. So, if your Volvo falls into these mentioned models, you’ll likely receive a notice for repair during the autumn by post. Drive safe!

    Are there any specific signs or symptoms that car owners should be on the lookout for regarding the defective seat belts, or is it best to bring the vehicle in for repair regardless?
