Volvo identifies faulty engine part

Do you have a Volvo model S60, S80, S90, V40, V60, V70, V90, XC60 or XC90 with a 2-litre or 4-cylinder diesel engine produced between 2014 and 2019?

Then you are one of 507,000 Volvo owners, who will receive a letter from Volvo, asking you to contact your local dealer for correction of a component in your car’s engine.

There has not been any incidents reported, Volvo’s own investigations have identified that in very rare cases the plastic engine intake manifold may melt and deform and – in the very worst case – there is a possibility that a localized engine bay fire may occur.

The company is keen to fix the faulty vehicles as fast as possible and customers won’t incur any costs related to addressing the error, a statement from Volvo said.

When asked about the financial impact of the correction, Stefan Elfstrom, a spokesman for Volvo Cars, said, “We don’t comment on the cost.”
