Malfunctions in seat belts forced the management of the Swedish brand Volvo to announce the start of a service company that covers more than 2 million cars.

The Swedish brand announced that due to problems in the functioning of seat belts, a service company will be organized that will cover the huge number of Volvo cars that were produced between 2006 and 2019. These models include S60 / S60L / S60CC and S80 / S80L sedans, XC60 and XC70 crossovers, as well as V60 and V70 station wagons. It is noteworthy that almost 25% of all this number of “problematic” cars was sold in Sweden.

The problem lies in the steel cable, which is part of the design of the driver and passenger seat belts.

The tension of this cable can weaken at any moment, which in turn can lead to an accident.

This is how Stefan Elfström, who is a spokesman for the automaker, announced the problem. “We are very surprised by this malfunction and have already organized a service company to fix this malfunction. Fortunately, at the moment there are no fixed cases where people suffered because of this malfunction.” He also noted that this is the largest service company in the history of the brand.
