Roughly 500,000 vehicles are being recalled by Volvo Cars worldwide due to a faulty engine component that could cause a vehicle to catch a fire in extreme cases.
The Swedish automaker reported that the vehicles affected by the problem are those with two-liter, four-cylinder diesel engines manufactured between 2014 and 2019. Specifically, the following models: S60, S80, S90, V40, V60, V70, V90, XC60 and XC90.
Volvo stated that the engine inlet manifold could melt due to temperature changes because it’s made from plastic.
The company noticed that this problem “has led to a car fire in a few cases.”
So far, there are no reports of injuries or accidents due to this problem.
Volvo Cars is under the ownership of China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.
