All of the affected vehicles were sold in Australia between the 1st of January 2017 and the 23rd of February 2018.

The recall notice advises that the vehicle headlights may not illuminate when the stalk switch is turned on and may suddenly turn off or illuminate intermittently while driving.

This is due to improper crimping of the internal wire terminals.

What are the hazards?

The headlights might suddenly turn off or start flashing, posing an accident risk for the vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should affected owners do?

The ACCC advises that owners will be contacted by direct mail and advised to contact their nearest Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle.

Owners who have concerns about their vehicle should email this address or contact their nearest Volvo Group Australia repairing dealer.
