Swedish carmaker Volvo is recalling more than a million vehicles worldwide because some of the components in the motor are at risk of melting, a spokesman says.

In the worst-case scenario, the problem could lead to engines catching fire, the spokesman said on Saturday. However, Volvo has not received any complaints of this happening.

According to Swedish broadcaster SVT, the problem affects models with four-cylinder diesel motors manufactured between 2014 and 2019. This includes the V40, V60, V70, S80, XC60 and XC90.
