Volvo has issued recall notices for almost half a million cars worldwide Saturday amid safety concerns.
Due to a manufacturer failure, there are fears that a component inside certain diesel engines may melt. In a worst-case scenario, this could lead to the engine catching on fire and endangering lives. Currently, there have been no reports of personal injury or accidents.
According to a Swedish news platform, this technical fault affects some four-cylinder diesel engines built between 2014 and 2019. Stefan Elfström, a Volvo spokesperson, said the V40, V60, V70, S80, XC60 and the XC90 models are all concerned.
This comes at a difficult time for the Chinese-owned car manufacturer which, despite rising sales figures, reported a slump in profits on Thursday.
