Vehicles Affected: Approximately 30,000 model-year 2016 Volvo XC90 SUVs manufactured from Jan. 27, 2015, to April 23, 2016
The Problem: On affected SUVs, the sunroof’s switch in the overhead console may not be adequately recessed to prevent it from being unintentionally pressed. If the switch is unintentionally pressed and the sunroof panel closes, there’s an increased risk of occupant injury. Affected SUVs fail to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 118 on power-operated window, partition and roof panel systems.
The Fix: Dealers will perform a software upgrade that disables the auto-close function for free.
What Owners Should Do: The recall is expected to begin June 20. Owners may call Volvo at 800-458-1552 or visit http://Volvo.custhelp.com and reference recall R89702. Owners also may call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
