Volvo XC70 (2013 – 2017)

Published on 21 December 2019

Excessive carbon deposits could build up in the intake system of the engine. Consequently, the temperature of the intake air could rise, causing the engine’s intake manifold to melt and deform. This could lead to the engine to stop, increasing the risk of accidents or even the engine bay to catch fire.

The 2014 – 2017 Model years Volvo XC70 vehicles affected by this recall were equipped with four-cylinder diesel engines: D4204T14 (engine code A8), D4204T5 (73) and D4204T4 (AR).

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Volvo dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
