Two Volvo Models Recalled to Fix Water Leak

Volvo showed off the S90, with its signature Mjolnir headlights. It's a handsome look that works to convey an air of quiet confidence – the T8 hybrid manages 410 hp, so plenty of confidence on tap.

Volvo and Transport Canada have recalled two of the Swedish brand’s latest models to correct a manufacturing flaw that could allow water to leak into the cabin.

In 2017 S90 sedans and 2016 and 2017 XC90 crossovers, an incorrectly-installed air conditioning drain hose could deposit water into the car’s interior. The resulting moisture might affect the operation of various electronic components, including those that control airbag and engine management systems.

Volvo is asking its dealers to inspect the A/C drain hoses in 3,848 affected vehicles and replace them where necessary.

As a child, Chris spent much of his time playing with toy cars in his parents’ basement; when his mother would tell him to go play outside, he made car sounds while riding his bicycle or dug roads for his toys in the flower garden. Now he gets to indulge his obsession playing with real cars that make their own cool noises, and gets paid for it.
