Volvo Recall of Certain Model Year 2012 S60 and XC60 Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—March 16, 2012.

Summary:  Volvo is recalling certain model year 2012 S60 and XC60 passenger vehicles.  An incorrect mixture of underbody coating and over-application can result in rigid, icicle-like areas hanging from vehicle’s undercarriage.

Consequence:  If this condition exists, the underbody coating may penetrate the fuels lines and cause fuel leakage, increasing the risk of a fire.

Remedy:  Dealers will inspect the vehicle undercarriage, and if excessive underbody coating is found in the fuel line area, it will be removed.  If the inspection reveals that the fuel lines are damaged, they will be replaced.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or before April 13, 2012.  Owners may contact Volvo Customer Care Center at 800-458-1552.

Notes:  Volvo Safety Recalls No. R251.  Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY: 800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
