Volvo XC60 Problems
The power lift gate may lose its power operation if the vehicle is moved with the lift gate open. This is an "untended result" of the safety logic in the lift gate control module. Volvo is currently considering a software upgrade for the control module to address this concern. Our technicians tell us, if this issue occurs the lift gate may be closed manually, or reset by removing the key, leaving the vehicle sit for 5 minutes, and restarting the engine.
Volvo XC60 Questions
I do not yet have an XC60. Had a 2000 V40 (bought new), drove for 11 years - sold. Want another Volvo (have a Nissan now). Wondering about general reliability and performance of the XC60. How is the 3.2L?
Hey does anyone out there know why anXC60 would loss its oil? Could it be the cylinder head or does anyone else have other ideas? Thank you.
Volvo XC60 Recalls
A manufacturing defect within the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) control unit may lead to an inadvertent deployment of the seat belt pretensioner and/or inflatable curtain. If the seat belt pretensioner and/or inflatable side curtain deploy without cause, the driver could be distracted and the driver's visibility could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. These vehicles have not been sold and the SRS control unit will be replaced prior to the cars being sold. The Volvo recall number is 257.
The incorrect mixture and over application of the underbody coating can result in rigid, icicle-like areas hanging from the undercarriage. Over time, this rough surface can damage the fuel lines, resulting in a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the undercarriage; if excessive coating is found in the fuel line area, it will be removed and damaged fuel lines will be replaced. The Volvo recall number is R251.
The wire harness under the front seats may not have been secured properly to the seat frame. As a result, when the seats are moved to adjust the seating position, the wire harness may be pulled, causing it to disconnect. In the event of a crash, the front and/or side impact airbags may deploy improperly or not at all, increasing the risk of personal injury. Also, the lap belt pretensioner may not deploy. Dealers will inspect and secure the affected harness as necessary to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is 250.
