Among the 35 recalls the NHTSA has announced recently, comes news of the following:

Volvo Car USA LLC (“Volvo”) has recalled an estimated 45,990 model year 2018-2019 Volvo XC60 vehicles. Under certain conditions and cold temperatures, the tailgate lifting arms in the recalled SUVs may freeze which may cause the lifting arms to separate from the vehicle.

According to the NHTSA, if the tailgate lifting arms separate, the arms could project rearward with significant force, increasing the risk of injury.

Volvo has notified registered owners, and dealers will replace the tailgate lift arms with an improved designed, 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.
