Child Restraint Locking System for 2001 Volvo V70 Wagons Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the child
restraint locking system in the 2001 Volvo V70 Wagons. The affected automobiles have
the ISOFIX-type child restraints installation application. The ISOFIX is a system to
assist owners in securing their child safety seat to the automobile seat.
The bolted joint, used for attaching the bracket
that is part of the installation hardware for the ISOFIX-type child restraint, may have
been incorrectly tightened. In the event of a crash, the seat occupant may not be properly
restrained, increasing the risk of injury.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from
January 1, 2000 to January 31, 2001.
Dealers will inspect the anchorage bolts and
tighten to the correct torque if necessary.
Owners with questions should contact Volvo at
