More than 500,000 Volvo Cars recalled due to fire risk

Representational Purpose

According to several media reports, Volvo Cars has recalled 507,000 vehicles globally, over concerns of a faulty engine component that “in extreme cases” could catch fire. The company suspects the models manufactured between 2014 to 2019 could be at risk.

Apparently, it’s the plastic engine intake manifold that could melt and deform and in extreme cases, could ignite a fire in the engine bay. The affected models include S60, S60 Cross Country, S80, S90, V40, V40 Cross Country, V60, V60 Cross Country, V70, V90, V90 Cross Country, XC60, XC70, and XC90 as well.

The company is contacting the customers with a letter outlining the symptoms to look out for. These include abnormal smell/odour, engine interruption, loss of power and illumination of the engine warning light. If found any, the drivers are advised to immediately pull over and contact Volvo On Call service for a fix to be carried out free of charge at the dealership.
