TALLINN – The Swedish automobile manufacturer Volvo is to recall altogether 167,000 vehicles worldwide, while the recall concerns a total of 115 cars in Estonia.

Volvo announced on Wednesday that the power-operated tailgate of the vehicles concerned may stop functioning in cold climates. The announcement was made only a few weeks after the car manufacturer recalled 219,000 vehicles to fix potential fuel leaks in the engine compartment.

Tiit Lillipuu, head of marketing of Volvo's Estonian dealer Info-Auto, said that 115 customers in Estonia will be contacted and asked to head to the service for an emergency repair as soon as the spare parts have arrived.

The recall concerns Volvo's 2018 and 2019 XC60 models.
