Volvo Recalls About 10,000 Cars for Faulty Driver's Side Airbags
Faulty wiring may prevent the driver's side airbag from deploying as intended or at all, increasing the risk of injuries during a crash, NHTSA said in a posting on its website. The models involved are the 2010 and 2011 S80 and XC70; the 2010 V70; and the 2011 XC60.
Owners of affected vehicles will begin receiving notices on Oct. 29 with instructions on where to bring recalled vehicles for repair.
Volvo was until recently a part of Ford Motor (F). The Dearborn, Mich., company completed the sale of the European luxury brand to China's Geely Holding Group in August.
