Child Restraint Locking System for 2001 Volvo V70 Wagons Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the child restraint
locking system in the 2001 Volvo V70 Wagons. The affected automobiles have
the ISOFIX-type child restraints installation application. The ISOFIX is a
system to assist owners in securing their child safety seat to the
automobile seat.

The bolted joint, used for attaching the bracket that is part of the
installation hardware for the ISOFIX-type child restraint, may have been
incorrectly tightened. In the event of a crash, the seat occupant may not be
properly restrained, increasing the risk of injury.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from January 1, 2000 to January 31,
2001.

Dealers will inspect the anchorage bolts and tighten to the correct torque
if necessary.

Owners with questions should contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.

Just received my official recall notice from Volvo on Saturday.

Darell covers most of the details accurately in his post. The only thing I might add is that Vovlo calls this "Recall Campaign 104A". They advise us to contact our authorized Volvo Retailer to schedule an appointment & the procedure will be completed at no cost and will take approximately 1/2 hour.

I haven't actually received my official notice yet. But as usual, I have plenty of little things I need to see the dealer about, so it won't be long before I'm in there to have this done as well.
