There may be an intermittent fault in the driver's airbag clockspring wiring connector for the supplemental restraint system, which may prevent the airbag from properly protecting the driver during the crash and increase the risk of injuries, according to NHTSA. The models involved include 2010 and 2011 S80, XC70, 2010 V70, along with 2011 XC 60.
