2010 Volvo XC90



Volvo, together with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has issued a recall on 2010 and 2011 model year XC90 SUVs due to a potential fault affecting the vehicles’ power steering system.

The affected vehicles, of which there are 350 units across the country, are those manufactured between January 29, 2010, through to August 16, 2010.

According to Volvo, the power steering fluid may leak from the oil pipe connection at the steering gear valve housing. This could lead to a sudden loss of power steering, increasing the risk of a crash, particularly if it fails when driving around a corner or at relatively high speeds.

Owners of the affected vehicles should take them to their nearest Volvo dealership, which will replace the oil pipes on the power steering rack free of charge.
