Volvo is a manufacturing company that is headquartered in Sweden and has produced luxury cars since 1927.
The brand has several different types of models and is known for its wide array that can appeal to almost any customer. Volvo produces SUVs, station wagons, hatchbacks, sedans, and compact cars.
The marketing focuses on Volvo’s ability to produce cars that are safe, solid, and reliable, while also emphasizing the heritage of Sweden. The most popular models are the XC60, 90, and 40, the V60, and V90 Cross Country.
Recently, Volvo had a major recall campaign that involved over 120,000 cars that were manufactured in 2019 and 2020 due to their defective automatic emergency braking systems.
The systems were not detecting pedestrians or other obstacles in the road. The recall affected almost every single Volvo vehicle that was built in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Volvo is expected to go through a massive recall in 2020 that includes about 2 million vehicles throughout the world due to defective front seats.
Front seats can be a huge safety issue when they are not secured properly because it puts the driver in danger in the event of a collision. It appears that Volvo has assessed the risk and is going to recall the vehicles that have weak supports in the front seats.
