Volvo is recalling certain model year 2016 Volvo XC90 vehicles manufactured January 27, 2015, to May 19, 2015.
The affected vehicles have front seats whose wiring harness for the Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) may have been routed incorrectly.
Volvo's number for this recall is: R89571
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V342000
