In the case of the Volvo recall both the S60 sedan and V60 wagon fitted with the available 1.6 litre petrol engine from model year 2011 to model year 2015 have been recalled due to the possibility of a coolant fluid leak under certain driving conditions. A total of 725 vehicles are on the recall list for Volvo in this instance.
High engine loads or high speeds after a cold start, particularly in cold conditions are the most likely scenarios for the fault to occur, and a warning light in the instrument cluster will be displayed.
The issue can lead to oil seepage in severe cases, and if oil contacts hot engine surfaces a smell or smoke may enter the cabin, with a possible risk of fire.
The recall for the Bentley Bentayga affects just 17 cars nationally and relates to missing data records from the vehicle construction which indicates that bolted joints used in the seats and instrument cluster may not have been tightened to specifications.
Vehicles will be inspected and if the bolts are found to have been incorrectly fastened, will be tightened to the correct torque value.
The Bentayga recall follows a recall earlier this year for the 2007-2008 Continental Flying Spur sedan, for incorrectly bonded sunroof glass.
In both of these latest instances owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by the respective manufacturers to organise repairs. Owners wishing to learn more should contact their local dealer for more information.
