WASHINGTON — Volvo Cars of North America is recalling 3,911 2016 Volvo XC90 SUVs because the third-row side curtain airbags may not fully inflate, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"Underinflated airbags may not fully protect third-row occupants, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash," said NHTSA in its recall summary.
A stop-sale order on the 2016 XC90 went into effect on August 4, according to Volvo documents filed with NHTSA.
The automaker said there are no reports of injuries, crashes or fatalities linked to the recall.
The affected XC90s were built from January 27, 2015 to July 10, 2015.
Volvo dealers will modify the D-pillar interior panels to allow full inflation of the third-row airbags. The recall is expected to begin on September 14. Owners can contact Volvo customer service at 1-201-768-7300.
Edmunds says: NHTSA said a retailer-information package regarding this recall was sent to Volvo dealers on August 12. Your dealer will be happy to answer any further questions.
