Volvo Cars is recalling 34,006 of its 2016 XC90 vehicles in the U.S. and 2,721 in Canada beginning June 14, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. unit said the model's coolant bleeder hose is susceptible to cracking when exposed to heat and humidity. The cracks can lead to a coolant leak, which can result in a fire in the engine compartment if the car is left stationary.
The Swedish carmaker disclosed that it has received 14 vehicle reports on the matter since September 2018, but there have been no reports about injuries, fatalities or crashes related to the case.
The company said it will replace the engine side coolant bleeder hose of the 2016 XC90 units for free with a more heat resistant material called polyphenylene sulfide.
