Volvo is recalling nearly 10,000 cars in the United States due to the possibility of air bags failing to deploy properly. The recall involves 9,746 2010-11 S80 and XC70s and 2011 XC60s and 2010 V70s.

Volvo said that the airbag issue involved “an intermittent fault in the driver’s airbag clock spring wiring connector for the supplemental restraint system.”

Volvo said it has received 142 complaints worldwide regarding the condition, calling it “potentially critical.”  Volvo dealers will install a metal shim in the driver’s airbag to remedy the issue.
