Volvo has announced a recall for the 2014-18 V60/S60, 2017-18 S90, 2015-19 V40/V40 Cross Country, 2017-18 S90, 2017-19 V90 Cross Country, 2014-17 XC60, and 2016-18 XC90.

The recall is due to concerns about an issue with the engine valve.

According to the company, the valve could leak and make the intake manifold melt or deform. If the manifold is damaged, the engine could lose power.

A total of 3828 vehicles are affected – a VIN list is attached here.

Volvo will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealer.

"If owners notice any unusual engine operation, such as the engine management light being lit, engine interruption or lack of power, please contact your local Volvo retailer," the company says in the original recall notice.
