The announcement came just two weeks after  Volvo recalled 219,000 vehicles  to fix potential fuel leaks in the engine compartment.

On Wednesday, the company informed XC60 customers who own 2018 and 2019 models that “a faulty component on cars equipped with power tailgate” could potentially cause “personal injury”.

“In cold climate, the tailgate lifting arm may separate, causing noise or loss of function,” it said, stressing that it had not received any reports of “significant injuries”.

“This is preventative action to avoid any future issues,” Volvo said.
