Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—June 5, 2011.
Summary: Volvo is recalling certain model year 2012 S60 passenger cars manufactured from November 18, 2010, through May 5, 2011. The software for the fuel pump units may not be compatible with all fuel pumps and components resulting in insufficient fuel transfer in the pump unit.
Consequence: Under certain driving conditions, there may be engine hesitation and possible engine stall even though the fuel gauge indicates up to ¼ of fuel left in the tank. This condition increases the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy: Volvo will notify owners and dealers will upgrade the engine control module software, free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about June 17, 2011. Owners may contact Volvo at 201-768-7300.
Notes: Volvo’s recall campaign number is R243. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
