Fire Risk Compels Volvo India to recall Cars
Volvo has been forced to recall more than five lakh cars globally. The recalled cars had a manufacturing date between the years 2014 & 2019, and all the cars were powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine. Volvo is a globally recognized company that offers luxurious and comfortable cars to their potential customers. The reason for the recall was faulty engines and the cars being recalled include S80, V40, V60, V70, XC60, S60, and the S90.
As per Volvo, the faulty engine component involves a plastic intake that can melt, deform and cause a localized motor bay fire. Volvo India has also enforced the action and they have recalled almost 3000 cars till now. To recall the cars at the earliest, customers are receiving calls and they are also being informed through emails. So far, there is no information available about how long it would take to fix a particular car.
Currently, Volvo India is completely involved in recalling the cars for the safety of the customers but they still have a launch scheduled for the year 2020. The launch was planned to take place this year but now, it has been postponed till the next year. The assembling of the S60 will take place at the company’s Bengaluru plant and it is being claimed to be a very successful model. It will be interesting to see how the vehicle gets a response from the customers but till then, the company will be involved in securing them.
