What the hell!!! This seems like a HUGE oversight of their QC process. How would this pass any inspections on the assembly line....

My wife has mine so they aren't technically missing :p

I wonder if this spans the different trims? 2,300 impacted is not a lot.

Maybe they put a standard nut instead of a flange nut? I will find out tonight when I check it.

I definitely remember Swedespeed posts [ I was going to write 'recall' but that would have been confusing ;) ]about loose seats for 2018 SPA XC60s.

Inspired by this thread, I looked up the 2018s and we are up to 3 recalls so far. I have the Automatic Lift Gate RECALL letter on my fridge, though it is only a "We will notify you when to bring in to fix type letter." I never received anything about the first recall about GPS.

Here is a cut and past, as of APR 05, 2019 for US 2019 XC60 T6s:


3 Recalls
for 2018 VOLVO XC60 T6


March 20, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V220000
Front Seats may Move in a Crash
If the nuts are missing, in the event of a crash, the front seat structure and position may be affected, increasing the risk of injury.

January 18, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V046000
Tailgate Lifting Arms may Freeze and Separate
If the tailgate lifting arms separate, the arms could project rearward with significant force, increasing the risk of injury.

November 13, 2018 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 18V800000
No GPS Location in the Event of a Crash
If the GPS location is not provided to emergency personnel it can inhibit emergency response in the event of a crash or injury.


so I expect this seat recall to show up about 3 months before the lease is up.

Has anybody checked their seat for the missing nuts? I looked at mine and they look ok to me.

I got my new XC 60 last April, and am surprised to see so many "quality control" things coming up. My brake rotors were warped from the factory (found this out first time I drove downhill on a steep grade in the mountains and my steering wheel and car started shaking-scary!), the tailgate recall, the air suspension last week was stuck on the highest position and I had to get a new compressor, and now missing nuts? This just seems like a lot of safety issues on a car that is supposed to be so safe. How do these things pass inspection?

Products (including vehicles) typically follow a bathtub curve for failure rate:



You're exiting the "burn-in" period...
