March 2018: A federal judge granted the company’s motion to dismiss concluding, among other things, that the complaint failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

May 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Volvo for advertising that its Volvo 850 had an innovative Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) with solid steel anti-intrusion doorbars on all four doors, when, according to the complaint, the SIPS did not exist in the rear doors.  The class-action lawsuit was filed on behalf of those who have leased or owned the Volvo 850 produced in 1997. (Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint later in 2013.) (Webb et al. v. Volvo Cars of N.A., LLC et al., Case No. 13-cv-2394, E.D. Penn.)
