At the bottom of the steering wheel bezel, a sharp edge is exposed. This edge is razor sharp and has caused lacerations. I see NHTSA id number: 10503380 and 10534272 appear to describe the same problem. (incident date is approximate).

The contact owns a 2012 Volvo S60. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph, there was a loss of steering control and the rear end spun uncontrollably. The dynamic traction control failed to activate and the vehicle crashed into the curbside, causing damage to the front driver and passenger's side wheel rims. In addition, the rear driver's side rim and front bumper was damaged. There were no injuries. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing. A trouble code was detected for the SRS module. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 18,991.

The steering wheel bezel delaminates on the bottom of the steering wheel and becomes very sharp causing cuts on hands. Dealer replaced the bezel and we have the same problem again. It appears to be a defect in the design or manufacture of the bezel. There should be no sharp cutting edges on the steering wheel!
