the problem: under certain conditions and cold temperatures, the tailgate lifting arms may freeze, which may cause the lifting arms to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
the fix: dealers will replace the tailgate lift arms with an improved design for free.
what owners should do: volvo sent an interim notification to owners on jan. 31; a second notification will be sent when parts for the fix are available. owners can call the automaker at 800-458-1552, the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
