A recall was issued for Volvo V70 2.0L diesels, what year does this affect?

I was interested in buying a Volvo V70 2.0L diesel estate but have read there was / is a recall on some of them due to the inlet manifold melting because they are made from plastic.

Even if it does not catch fire I don't fancy sitting in a car with the smell of hot plastic entering the ventilation system.

I was looking for one around the 2010 to 2012 year, my question to you is what years did Volvo fit these plastic manifolds and were they also fitted to the 2.4L diesel.

Thank you for any help you can give or if you can advise were I can get an answer other than the Volvo Owners Forum as I want to be sure.

A recall was issued for Volvo V70s over the potential for the inlet manifold to melt and deform, affecting 69,630 vehicles. You can check a specific car through its registration or look at particular model years by searching the government's website here: www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-recall

A quick search showed that this recall was not issued for 2010 and 2011 Volvo V70s, but was issued for 2012-2016 models, although it does not specify which engines this applies to.
