LONDON: Luxury vehicles company, Volvo Cars is recalling 507,000 vehicles worldwide due to a faulty engine component that, in extreme cases, could result in a fire.
Cars that were produced between 2014 and 2019 are being recalled. The models affected are S60, S80, S90, V40, V60, V70, V90, XC60 and XC90.
The Swedish carmaker said that its own investigations have identified the problem.
“Investigations have identified that in very rare cases the plastic engine intake manifold may melt and deform. In the very worst case, there is a possibility that a localised engine bay fire may occur.”
A spokesman for Volvo Cars, Stefan Elfstrom said that despite the fact that no injuries have been reported, all customers have received a letter asking them to contact their local retailer.
Volvo Cars is currently working on fixing the problem.
“For now customers are being made aware of this potential issue so they are able to react accordingly.”
