Volvo recall: Steering can lock Car and sport drive

Volvo recalls 192 vehicles worldwide. In Germany, 20 vehicles were affected.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Federal Motor Transportation Authority (KBA) and Volvo Cars have launched a recall campaign for V60CC, XC60 and XC90 vehicles. Currently 192 vehicles are affected worldwide, 20 in Germany and 74 in the USA.



Investigations by Volvo Cars revealed a possible problem with the steering gear, due to a manufacturing defect at the supplier. On rare occasions, double screws have been placed on top of each other at the screw assembly station. There is a risk that the steering wheel will lock up if the gearbox screw falls out.


These models are currently affected by the recall:

  • Volvo V60CC From the production period 15.11.2018 to 07.02.2019
  • Volvo V90CC From the production period 15.11.2018 to 07.02.2019
  • Volvo XC60 From the production period 15.11.2018 to 07.02.2019
  • Volvo XC90 From the production period 15.11.2018 to 07.02.2019

(worldwide: 192 vehicles; Germany: 20 vehicles; USA: 74 vehicles)


As a precaution, Volvo will replace the steering box. The recall can be found at the KBA under reference number 012444 and at the NHTSA under case number 23V-001. The recall manufacturer code is R10213.
