The Volvo XC90 has many features that appeal to consumers seeking luxury. However, the Volvo XC90, like other SUV models, also has a heightened risk for a rollover if it crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2x4 Volvo XC90 has a 19.1% risk for rolling over in the event of an accident. This risk is only slightly modified if a consumer buys a 4x4 model, which has a 17.9% risk.
Given the extremely dangerous nature of rollover accidents, it is important that those who drive these vehicles understand their legal rights and options if they are involved in a rollover caused by a flaw in the vehicle.
