Volvo S80 (2000 – 2003)

Published on 20 November 2020

Problem description:

The propellant used in the airbag inflator may experience a material alteration over time due to degradation occurring after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures and high-temperature cycling.

In the event of an airbag being deployed, it may underinflate or the excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator body to rupture and metal fragments may pass through the cushion material causing injury to the occupants.

Passenger cars Volvo S60 and S80, model year 2001 – 2003, equipped with driver airbags containing FG2 Twin inflators with 5AT 148N propellant are affected by this recall.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Volvo dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
