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.


Even if you don’t see your car in the table below, it doesn’t mean it was not the subject of a recall sometime in the past. The best way to verify whether a particular car is affected by some recall is to contact a Volvo Authorized Service and ask for the VIN code to be checked not only for recalls but also for various Service bulletins.

It will only cost you your time because such information is provided for free. Free of charge are usually also all the repairs that are related to the recall. It doesn’t matter whether you are the first, second or even third owner. It doesn’t even matter whether you have been to Volvo authorized service regularly, occasionally or never before.

If you wish to get fully comprehensive VIN lookup, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.


What is a VIN code?
The VIN code is a unique identification number that is embossed on the body of the car and shown on the ID card. In some cars, it can also be found in the frame under the windscreen. It is made up of a unique combination of 17 letters and numbers.
