Vehicles Affected: Approximately 34,000 model-year 2016 Volvo XC90 SUVs
The Problem: Exposure to heat and humidity may cause the engine coolant bleeder hose to crack, resulting in a coolant leak. If the coolant leak goes unnoticed, coolant may accumulate in the catalytic converter heat shield insulation and catch fire when the vehicle is stationary, increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the engine side coolant bleeder hose for free.
What Owners Should Do: Volvo will begin notifying owners June 14. 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.
