In 2013 Volvo S60 and XC60 are Recalled For Airbag Defect

Volvo Cars of North America is conduct a charitable safety remembers of a small number of 2013 model year S60 sport sedans and XC60 crossovers for an airbag blemish. A perceive on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) site lists the number of pretentious vehicles as nine.

Consumption of the seat belt pretension and/or side screen airbag could result in driver interruption and compact visibility, both of which enlarge crash risk. Documentation from Volvo indicates that none of the exaggerated vehicles have been sold and have been quarantined on dealer lots previous to being repaired. The SRS manage unit will be replaced in all of the focus vehicles prior to sale to clientele. 

The speedometers in the vehicles are calibrate from the factory and do not require recalibration unless the wheel and overall rolling distance are distorted. During 2001–2004 the 2.3 liter T5 engine was used and in 2005-2009 the 2.4 liter Volvo T5 engine was used. Also further than common conjecture and myths, the engines are not chipped or modified especially for police use they are absolute factory spec but in 'exceptional cases' the speed limiter (250 km/h) may have been detached.
