BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Volvo is recalling some 2019 S60 sedans made at their plant in Berkeley County.
The company said some bolts near the rear suspension component may not have been tightened correctly on the assembly line and could result in rapid shifts when driving.
The National Highway Safety Administration says those rapid shifts can increase the risk of crashing.
Volvo will notify owners if their vehicle is under recall beginning June 21st.
Dealers will inspect the rear toe link flange bolts and lock nuts, replacing them if necessary, free of charge.
The vehicles in question were manufactured between September 25, 2018 and April 1, 2019. A spokesman with Volvo tells us the problem was addressed as soon as it was discovered.
It’s estimated that over 8,200 S60 sedans are affected. Owners may contact Volvo Customer Service at 1-800-458-1552. Volvo’s number for this recall is R19938.
This recall comes less than a year since the Volvo sedan was revealed at the Berkeley County plant last fall.
