Our Quick Take:
The bolts securing the cargo roof rails may be too short. When carrying roof cargo, the rails may come loose, increasing the risk of a crash.
What Should You Do?
Due to the low number of vehicles recalled and the fact that all owners of affected vehicles have been notified, this could be considered a low priority recall. If you have any questions, please contact your Volvo dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Seven vehicles were assembled with roof rail attaching bolts that are too short. When carrying cargo, one or both rails may come loose, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the roof rail bolts as necessary. The Volvo recall number is R196.
