“The sunroofs on the affected vehicles have a switch on the overhead console that may not be adequately recessed to prevent the switch from being unintentionally pressed,” NHTSA said in its recall summary. “If the switch is unintentionally pressed and the sunroof panel closes, there is an increased risk of occupant injury.”
WASHINGTON — Volvo Car USA is recalling 29,697 2016 Volvo XC90 luxury SUVs because of a sunroof problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
There are no reported injuries or accidents linked to the recall, Volvo spokesman Jim Nichols told Edmunds.
The affected XC90s were built from January 27, 2015 to April 23, 2016.
Volvo dealers will perform a software upgrade that disables the auto-close function. The recall is expected to begin on June 20. Owners can contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-458-1552.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should be ready to make a service appointment with their dealer once they receive their official recall notice.
