      Unhappy Emission Control System (ECS) issues in 2019 XC60

      My 2019 XC60 T5 AWD Inscription has 3,400 miles on it. It is back in the shop for the second time in a month for an ECS problem. The first time the ECS/Check Engine light came on, in March, the dealer kept it for a day and told me that they had replaced the fuel filler pipe (problem on multiple recent XC60s) and updated the vehicle's software. 3 weeks later, the ECS light was back on. Took a week to get a service appointment with a loaner. They tell me today that the vehicle has "fault codes for the evap lines at the engine for the ECS system. 2 lines require replacement, and the parts have to be special ordered, which will take a week." Dealer also told me (because I asked) that mine is the 3rd XC60 in a week with this same issue. "There's a problem with the way the current evap lines are routed and the emissions system in the car does not agree. Volvo has designed a very sensitive emissions system on these vehicles." Apparently so! This is not a good start to first four months of ownership, (and I'm even giving them hall pass on the rear liftgate strut recall/replacement).

      Any thoughts on this from those more mechanical than I?

      Experts on this forum will explain to you that this is nothing, that it is normal and you do not worry
      They will write that the car has a warranty and that the service will solve all problems

      Well, i'm up to 7300 miles on the XC60 and the ECS warning light came on again. Took it to the dealer and they said service bulletin tells them to replace the EVAP PIP and Fuel Filler Pipe (AGAIN). This is the third time now for the same issue and same "solution". Is there any harm being done to the engine, or is this purely an Emission Control compliance annoyance?

      No harm is being done to your engine.

      Second time in about 6 weeks with the light coming on. At least this time car is driveable. 2020 with factory installed Polestaae. It seems nobody is having this issue anymore.

      Evaporator hose failure is a very common problem on this vehicle. It's a known issue that affects a lot of XC60s (and other SPA vehicles). I'm very surprised that your vehicle got taken off the road so long and I suspect that door to Covid-19 delays. When I had the same problem, it was addressed within a few hours.

      Fwiw, I have 12,000 miles on my vehicle and haven't had so much as a misaligned trim n piece since the evaporator hose. Quality control had been outstanding on my XC60.

      from the forum so far i get the impression this is normal and I can repair it at leisure (i.e. say over the next 1 month or 1000 miles) . Is that correct or do i need to rush in since the vehicle might be unsafe to drive
