2001 Volvo S80 and V70 Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001 Volvo S80 and V70 manufactured between November 2000 and January 2001.

On certain sedans and wagons, the rear outboard seat belt anchorage bolts may have been incorrectly tightened. In the event of a crash, the seat occupant may not be properly restrained, increasing the risk of injury.

3,276 vehicles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will inspect the anchorage bolts and tighten to the correct torque level.
