The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and here is the info relating to the action from the official recall notice…
What are the defects?
The air conditioning drainage hose, that is used to transfer condensation water generated by the air conditioning unit out of the vehicle, may not have been properly attached.
What are the hazards?
This might result in moisture inside the occupant compartment, which could lead to air conditioning functionality issues.
In a worst-case scenario, if the leakage has not been detected over a period of time, this condition could affect other electrical systems, posing a safety risk to the vehicle occupants.
Affected Volvo S60/XC60 owners are being asked to contact their nearest Volvo dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
