Volvo is recalling up to 54,000 cars as a result of evidence of metal fragments from an exploding airbag inflator that could kill drivers. This recall is similar to the Takata recalls, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is currently reviewing data with Volvo about not only the recalled vehicles, but other Volvo vehicles equipped with inflators made by parts supplier ZF/TRW. A spokesperson for ZF/TRW was unsure if the same inflators were sold to other automakers.
