Volvo Car Corp. is recalling 8,266 S60 luxury sedans across the U.S. over a possible rear suspension defect that may lead to stability problems, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. unit said an additional 909 units in Canada are also subject to the recall. The potentially affected 2019 S60 units were produced between Sept. 25, 2018, and April 1, 2019.
The agency said rear suspension toe link flange lock nuts may not have been properly tightened, which could result in a sudden change in vehicle handling and may increase the risk of a crash.
The carmaker said it will install new flange bolts and flange lock nuts on units where the flange lock nut is found to be loose. The inspection and necessary replacements will be carried out for free, the agency said.
The recall is expected to start June 21.
