- Models with the 2.0-litre diesel engine produced between 2014 and 2019 are affected
- A faulty plastic air intake manifold could melt and cause a fire
Swedish automobile brand, Volvo, has recalled 5.07 lakh vehicles across the globe. The company has revealed that vehicles across segments have been recalled due to a potential risk of fire in the engine bay. Volvo India has not revealed any details regarding a recall in the country.
Volvo models that are equipped with the 2.0-litre diesel engine have been fitted with a faulty plastic air intake manifold, which could melt away and cause a fire in the vehicle. The recall affects models including the S60, S80, V40, V60, V70, V90, XC60 and the XC90 that were manufactured between 2014 and 2019.
Speaking on the occasion, Stefan Elfstrom, a spokesman for Volvo Cars, said, “Investigations have identified that in very rare cases, the plastic intake manifold may melt and deform. 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.”
