Approximately 87,200 model-year 2018-20 Volvo XC60 SUVs are being recalled because the nuts that secure the front wipers may not have been sufficiently tightened, possibly causing the wipers to not function properly, impairing visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
Volvo will begin notifying owners on Oct. 26. Owners can call the automaker at 800-458-1552 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will tighten the nuts holding the front windshield wiper arms.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
