Volvo is the latest carmaker to call a mass recall, of 127,000 cars worldwide.
The 2016 and 2017 XC90 SUVs, S90 sedans and V90 wagons could end up with leaking air conditioning, which could drip onto the airbags and cause them to malfunction.
The company says there have been no reports of injuries yet, or airbags that didn't inflate due to the problem... but the risk remains.
Fewer than 1 percent of the vehicles are expected to need repairs, but Volvo says it wants to inspect them all.
Drivers will likely see a dashboard warning light if there’s a problem. They should call the dealer immediately and have the drain hose checked and replaced if needed. Wiring may also need to be upgraded.
