Last week only two safety issues have been identified with models recalled by Volvo and Mercedes-Benz.
A large number of 2007-2018 Volvo S60, S80, V60, V60 Cross Country, V70, XC60 and XC70 vehicles (VINs found here) have been recalled due to an issue with the flexible steel cable connected to the seat belts.
It appears that the outboard side of the front seats could wear and eventually separate from the seat belt meaning it would not properly restrain the occupant. This could lead to an increased risk of an injury or fatality in the event of an accident.
Known owners will be contacted by Volvo to advise of the recall and to inform that replacement parts are not expected to be available until after October 2020. The letter will also detail how to secure the front seat belt whilst waiting for parts to arrive.
Over thirty thousand 2000-2010 Mercedes-Benz C, CLK, CLS and E-Class vehicles (VINs found here) have been recalled this week due to a sunroof issue.
In affected vehicles, the durability of the bonding between the sunroof glass panel and the sliding roof frame does not meet specifications which may allow the glass panel to separate from the vehicle and cause an accident.
Affected owners are required to contact their preferred Mercedes-Benz dealer to arrange a free inspection and repair of their sunroof if required.
