Which Volvo models are being recalled in 2019?

11 recalls for 15 Volvo models in 2019


In 2019, Volvo announced 11 recalls involving 15 models through the EU Rapex system. The Volvo XC60 had the most recalls (6).


We’ve sorted all 2019 recalls according to the model into a table below.

The vast majority of Volvo recalls in 2019 concerned the engine problems. In March, the Nordic carmaker issued a recall because of possible cracks in the fuel hose that could cause fuel leakage into the engine compartment. In July, due to the faulty EGR cooling circuit which may not be robust enough, and at the end of the year, due to the rising temperature of the intake air, causing the engine intake manifold to melt and deform.



Most of the Volvo models were also affected by a software problem in the emergency call communication module, which was published via Rapex in February. With the most recalled SUV XC60, the tailgate lifting arms could become loose. The possible missing screw connection on the front seat rails can be found not only with the XC60 but also with the S90 model. With the XC90, a defective ventilation hose may cause leakage of a coolant liquid.

We’ve written about some problems in more detail in separate articles.
