Volvo Recall.

Volvo is recalling almost 70,000 cars with diesel engines in the UK. This is due to a fault that could result in a small risk of fire.

The recall affects certain Volvo cars sold between 2014 and 2019 that have two-litre four-cylinder diesel engines. Some 507,000 vehicles are being recalled globally due to the fault.

Volvo says there is currently no fix for the problem. Instead it is writing to customers to let them know what to look out for.

The company says if your car is not displaying any symptoms of the fault, the car is safe to drive.

Re: Volvo Recall.

Better to be seen than not at all ... me thinks... all motorcycles should also be fitted with daylight running lights, I know from past experience of 25 years of riding when we did not have them.

Personally I think all BMW and Audi drivers should have a big inflatable knob strapped to their heads, so we're all warned that they are d***heads.
