Volvo Recalls More Than 140,000 Vehicles, Doors Open While In Motion

Volvo is recalling 144,937 S60 sedans and V60 wagons because their doors may open unexpectedly while the car is in motion. The model years that are affected are from the 2011 through 2017.

Car doors may suddenly open even if they appear to be tightly closed, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The issue has to do with faulty parts in the door latch mechanism that are likely to fail in extremely hot weather. NHTSA began the recall after receiving complaints from car owners.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by January 24, 2020, and will then be able to bring their cars to Volvo dealers for repair. Dealers will replace all four door latches free of charge.
