Volvo Recall Lookup

Volvo  has recalled 2021 models to fix the supplemental restraint system (SRS) airbag problem. The SRS control unit may not have been properly attached to the car body and may become detached during a crash. If the SRS units detached, the airbags may not deploy in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury during a crash. The recall includes:

  • 2021 Volvo V60
  • 2021 V60 Cross Country
  • 2021 Volvo V90
  • 2021 V90 Cross Country
  • 2021 Volvo XC60
  • 2021 Volvo XC90

Owners will be notified about the recall. Volvo dealers will inspect the screws holding the SRS control unit to the car and if necessary, will tighten the mounting screws, at no charge to owners.

Find out if your Volvo is affected by the recall. Lookup your VIN to search recall information for your vehicle.
