Volvo is expected to inspect and fix seat rails of four of its vehicles due to a front-seat issue that may result in an accident.

Vehicles involved in the recall are the Volvo S40, S60, V50 and XC60, the US-based National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said in a statement posted on Autoblog.

"The front seat rail's detection system (in the said vehicles) was manufactured incorrectly and may permit the passenger to forward the seat beyond the intended maximum," the NHTSA said.

The agency added that "positioning of the seatr beyond the intended maximum can cause increased risk of injury to the passenger in the event of a crash."

Dealers in the US will inspect the problem in about 7,420 Volvo units.
