The risky seat belts can restrain the passengers in a crash.

Volvo had to recently recall a total of 74,000 vehicles from all over the United States. These vehicles are recalled due to the fact that there are risks involved while wearing the seat belts of these cars.

The recalled cars include Volvo S60, S90, V60, XC60 and XC90 vehicles from the 2016-17 model years. According to the spokesperson of Volvo, Jim Nichols, the issue was caused due to the connecting pin that is attached to the seat belt buckle.

The pin can deform at times in a crash that can cause the seat belt to work in the adequate way. The inadequacy can cause the passengers to be stuck in the seat for long as without assistance the buckle cannot come out. 

Jim also said that no incidents or injuries were reported up till now related to the problem. The recall was made for a precautionary measure.

The cars which are not being sold by dealers are checked by them in order to remove the faulty pins of the seat belts, according to AutomotiveNews. Along with that, the ones which are being sold will be given a review and change of parts after they are inspected on the Volvo dealer. 

Volvo had officially notified the customers of the recall on October 28th. The owners of the affected cars will be required to bring their cars to nearest dealers of Volvo. Here the cars will be inspected for any problem in seat belt.

The cars will be given free replacement of affected parts if any problem will be found with them. This issue had also arisen in Volvos in Canada recently which led to recall of 5000 vehicles.
