Volvo Seat Recall

Volvo has issued a recall of 7,420 vehicles over a concern with a seat safety. Apparently, some – and I’m not sure which – 2009-2011 S40, S60, V50 and XC60 vehicles equipped with power front passengers seats have a rail detection system that is defective. The problem is that it allows occupants to move the seat forward too far.

So what? Well, seats with extreme forward positioning put the passengers at increased risk in a car accident. Volvo has not date set for the recall but they intend to make it right and repair the problem at no charge to the consumer.
