— A Volvo S60 recall has been issued for more than 9,000 model year 2019 vehicles that may have loose toe link flange lock nuts on both side of the rear suspensions.
The 2019 S60s can suffer from stability problems while driving if the lock nuts loosen.
Volvo says the vehicle stability system will detect a fault if an outer toe link bolt falls off, deactivating the stability system and according to the automaker, "vehicle maneuverability will be heavily affected which can increase the risk of a crash."
Volvo discovered the problem during final inspections of S60s in January 2019 when three vehicles were found with loose toe link nuts. Volvo made changes to the production aspect and believed the problem affected just the three vehicles.
That belief changed when another S60 was found with loose toe link nuts even though changes had been made during production at the same plant. Volvo opened an internal investigation in April and determined the matter was serious and worthy of a recall.
The only possible warning a driver may have is noise coming from the rear of the vehicle.
More than 8,260 vehicles are recalled in the U.S. and another 900 vehicles are called back to dealers in Canada.
The 2019 Volvo S60 recall will begin in the U.S. June 21, 2019. The automaker says dealerships will replace any loose rear toe link flange bolts and lock nuts.
Volvo can be reached at 800-458-1552 and owners and lessees should use recall number R19938.
