According to Volvo, the flexible steel cables that connect the seat belts to the front outboard seating positions may wear out and cause the seat belts to fail when the cable fasteners come loose.
Volvo started investigating the problem in 2015 after receiving two Italian reports, but the investigation was closed more than a year later when no defect trend was found.
No reports were received in 2017 but in December 2018 two additional reports came in.
In 2019 four more reports were received, but no problems have been detected in the U.S. to date.
Volvo decided to issue the recall after an investigation with the supplier.
Volvo dealers will replace the seat belt anchor cables for both front seats when the recall begins August 25, 2020.
Owners may contact Volvo at 800-458-1552 and refer to recall number R10029.
