  • XC60 in 2018. Millions of Volvos including this model are being recalled over fears over the engine melting. Models include the V40 V60 V70 S80 XC60 and XC90

Volvo is recalling nearly 70,000 cars in the United Kingdom over concerns that they could catch fire.

The affected models have four-cylinder diesel engines and are 2014-2019 versions of: S80, S60, V70, XC70, S60 Cross Country, V60, XC60, V60 Cross Country, S90, V90, V90 Cross Country, XC90, V40 and V40 Cross Country.

The company, which is owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co., said its own "investigations have identified that in very rare cases the plastic engine intake manifold may melt and deform".

The issue affects some cars made in the past five years.

The 69,616 United Kingdom cars affected are among more than half a million being recalled globally.

"Volvo is contacting all affected customers".

In the worst-case scenario, the problem could lead to engines catching fire, the spokesman said on Saturday.

Volvo did not specify how many fires had been reported but confirmed to the Telegraph that some of the incidents had been in the UK. As of right now, there haven't been any reports of accidents or personal injuries due to this issue.

While a spokesperson for the automaker refused to provide any details regarding a potential financial impact, Volvo will of course make sure that customers will not incur any costs with regards to fixing this issue.

Drivers are being told it is "safe to continue to use your car" if it does not show any signs of a problem, such as an engine warning light illuminating, a lack of power or an "unusual smell".

"We are working on a technical solution to the problem". It followed earlier recalls in 2015 and 2016.
