Volvo recalls 54,000 cars after one death due to possible air bag defect

  • Volvo models affected by the recall include S80 and S60 vehicles.

Volvo Cars is recalling 54,000 US vehicles for an air bag defect after a report of one crash death, according to a filing with US regulators.

The unit of Geely Automotive is recalling 2001-2003 model S80 and S60 vehicles sold or registered in high humidity US states because the driver side frontal air bag inflator may rupture, sending metal fragments flying, when the air bag is deployed.
