The automaker says a component within the door latch may break and give people a tough time when trying to latch the doors. Occupants may believe the doors are secured properly when they aren't, leaving open the possibility of a door opening while driving.
According to Volvo, a latch can weaken and the retention hook for the pawl spring in the door latch may break off if the vehicle is exposed to hot climates. The automaker says simply opening a door can cause a latch fracture.Customers may notice problems when trying to close the doors and may see warning lights indicating the doors are ajar.
The Volvo door latch recall is scheduled to begin January 4, 2020. Volvo dealerships will replace all four door latches.Model year 2011-2017 Volvo S60, S60I, V60, S60CC and Volvo V60CC owners may call Volvo at 800-458-1552 and refer to recall number R89978.https://www.volvocars.com/us/own/add...ll-informationNovember 26, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V849000

This came out on 11/26, but I was notified on my Gas Buddy app today and the carcomplaints.com post was put up yesterday. So even though my VIN isn't currently showing as affected on the Volvo or NHTSA site, but I will be checking again in a couple months just in case they are still updating the system.
UPDATE: As of 12/17/19, the Volvo and NHTSA site are not up to date on which VINs are affected. When people start posting that the recall is showing up on that site, I will update again.
