Volvo Car USA is recalling 45,990 model year 2018-2019 Volvo XC60s.
Under certain conditions and cold temperatures, the tailgate lifting arms may freeze which may cause them to separate from the vehicle.
If the tailgate lifting arms separate, they could project rearward with significant force, increasing the risk of injury.
What to do
Volvo has notified owners, and dealers will replace the tailgate lift arms with an improved design free of charge.
An interim notification was mailed on January 31, 2019 to notify owners of the issue. A second letter will be sent once remedy parts are available.
Owners may contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-458-1552. Volvo's number for this recall is R89910.
