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.
