For everyone’s safety
At Volvo Cars, safety is at the core of everything we do. Our mindset is not only to build cars that take you where you want to go, but also do it in the safest way. No matter if you’re tall or short, a woman or a man, young or old. Our mission is to create cars that are safe for everyone.
Throughout the process of designing and building a Volvo, we put people first, making your perspective ours. Before a new Volvo leaves the factory, each car undergoes an extensive quality control program, to ensure that everything meets our high standards. But our job doesn’t end there. Through our quality systems and close co-operation with our worldwide retailer network, we follow up on Volvos of all model years to see how real-life driving affects the car and its components.
Our safety commitment is one that lasts for life.
Despite our thorough testing and follow up, issues may occur that can be traced back to the construction and building of the car, or the car components. Sometimes they are things you won’t even notice, like a software update that we take care of at your next service appointment. But in rare situations, we need to make a recall, asking you to contact your local Volvo retailer to have an issue corrected. This is particularly the case when we encounter issues that may affect your safety, even if there are no reports of incidents.
To find out if your vehicle has a recall and should be brought into an authorized Volvo Cars Retailer, please enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) below. Volvo recall information is available from August 1999. For recalls prior to this date and for all other Canadian recall-related inquiries please contact our Customer Care team .
