“What may happen is that the fuel may leak out into the engine compartment over a long period of time,” said Group spokeswoman Annika Bjerstaf.
The recall affects the Volvo V40, S60 and V60 and Cross Country versions. Also covered are the V70 and XC70, S80, XC60 and XC90 built in 2015 and 2016.
Volvo said the recall is “a preventive safety measure,” and that no accidents or injuries have been linked to the issue to date.
The company says it will replace the fuel line at no cost, and owners have been notified by snail mail.
