Recall defect descripton: Volvo quality follow-up procedures have identified an issue with a limited number of S60 & V60 Volvos (MY2013). The securing screws for the inner A-pillar panels may have been torqued incorrectly. This could cause the A-pillar panels to crack and this may affect the attachment of the trims during a collision should the inflatable curtain be activated. If the trims become detached, they could cause injury to the occupants in the front seats. The corrective action is to replace both A-pillar trims as well as the securing screws.

Volvo Recall action: Replace both trim panels and screws.
