The new volvo suppose to come with a safety belt warning for both driver and passenger but in one scenario it's not. In the event that the driver is seated and it's belt is fasten once the passenger sits in the front passenger seat the airbag alerts teh driver that the passenger armed the bag but does not alert the driver that the belt is not fastened. In other words, i came to pick my doughtier up from school listenig to the radio, she was on teh phone, set in and we drove off, only when we got home we realized she didn't have the belt on.. No warning icons no chimes.. Very dangerous situation. In the event both driver and passenger sits in the car while car is put on alert will sound and warning light will be illuminated for at least a minute if passenger is unbuckled.

The rear middle seat lap belt locks while the vehicle is stationary, to disengage the locking of the belt, it has to be totally disconnected from the locking mechanism and totally released back to no passenger position for the lock to disengage. Incident. I had a child in the middle seat with booster seat with the seat belt engaged. When i reached my destination i could not get the child out of the seat belt because it was locked and there was no way to release the belt from the buckle because it was locked and the child almost suffocated because i could release the belt. There was no accident and no reason for the belt to become locked. I had to cut the seat belt with a knife to release the child.

I swerved to miss a deer. I ran off a big drop off&hit on mainly the driver's side. There was over $26k damage repairs done. They have decided to total my jeep with a little over 36k miles. I ran off the raid&hit on mainly the driver's side. My air bags never deployed but most importantly my seat belt did not prevent me from hitting my face on the steering wheel. I have a gash above my right eye that the emts advised me to go to a hospital to have stitches. Butbwith the covid-19 epidemic fully in force i decided not to go to the next county for medical. Assitance since my local hospital is not equipped to preform the medical assistance that was needed. I missed several. Days of work for this incident. I'm asking for answers to why my air bags did not deploy but most importantly i'm wanting & needing to know why my seat belt did not prevent my face from hitting the steering wheel & also warping my steering wheel in the process. Please i need answers for i've always wanted & dreamed of owning a jeep. Then i finally was able to purchase one but i need to know that it is also safe for me & my family.

Seatbelts are wet and moisture is building up in the car after heavy rain while sunroof and all doors closed and car is parked. Possibly a sunroof draining issue. Seatbelts mainly affected are in the rear, particularly rear-passenger - but front belts affected also. Water also observed in rear door wells and on front driver's window post (left of windshield). Seatbelts smell damp and are so wet that they are uncomfortable to wear and would leave water on clothes,

The first problem: the car has acceleration delays, it bucks and lags when switching lanes and driving in heavy traffic. The car jerks when accelerating at slow speeds. I almost got into a serious accident due to the acceleration delays when making a left in heavy traffic. The second problem is, i received a vehicle alert message on may 30th at 10:30am regarding the srs airbag system. "a malfunction in the srs airbag system has been detected. Contact your toyota dealer to have your vehicle inspected. " the airbag check light never lighted so i didn't see this message until a month in a half later. Dangerous for my passenger which is usually my oldest son. The car is in the dealership now and they are trying to figure out the airbag issue. I feel unsafe in my car due to acceleration delays. The vin# is not in the recall list and i do not understand why not. It has the same issues as the other cars being recalled. The third problem: very randomly the seat belt alert alarm will start beeping while i'm driving my smallest son. Both of us have our seat belts and i do not own a big heavy bag. The car wont stop until i pull over, park, turn it off and on. This is not normal but it happens very randomly.
