Volvo Recall Information

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.

Safety recalls

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.

Volvo S60, S80 vehicles (model year 2001-2003)

Volvo Car Corporation is conducting a safety recall on certain Volvo S60 and S80 vehicles (model year 2001 - 2003).

This follows a recent Volvo Cars investigation, which revealed an issue with the driver airbag. In the event of a collision in which the driver airbag is activated, parts of the inflator inside the airbag may project out, and in the worst-case scenario, impact you - potentially causing serious injury.

As a result, Volvo Cars needs to replace the driver airbag in all concerned vehicles as soon as possible. To check if your Volvo is affected by the safety recall, enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) in the search box below.

Your Volvo vehicle is not affected by the safety recall. Thank you.

Your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) can be found on the first page of the service and warranty booklet or in your car's registration document.
