Vehicles Affected: Approximately 17,500 model-year 2017-19 Volvo XC40, XC60 and XC90 SUVs; S90 sedans; and V60, V60 Cross Country, V90 and V90 Cross Country wagons
The Problem: The software installed in the vehicle connectivity module may have an error causing the telematics and driver support systems to function improperly. As a result, the GPS will not provide location information to emergency personnel in the event of an emergency, which can inhibit emergency response in the event of a crash or injury.
The Fix: Dealers will correct the software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Volvo will begin notifying owners Jan. 7, 2019. Owners can call the automaker at 800-458-1552, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
