Reliability

  • RECALL ALERT:On November 23, 2007, Volvo issued a recall affecting 38,000 Europe-market diesel cars including the S60, V70, XC70 and XC90 models made in 2006 due to a fuel injector plants material fault that could cause the motor to catch fire. The vehicle is also involved in another recall involving 18,000 units along with its V70 sibling. This time relating to an airbag problem in the side of the car. Affected in this second recall are cars sold in Sweden, Britain and the United States for M.Y. 2006.[1]
  • RECALL ALERT: On April 28, 2008, Volvo issued a recall affecting about 65,000 2008 M.Y. Volvo V70 and XC70s. The reason lies with a a software problem that delays that triggering of the side-impact air-bags. Only European market vehicles are affected. US and Canada units are clear out of the woods.[2]
  • RECALL ALERT:On December 22 2009, Volvo issued a recall affecting 136100 MY 2001 - 2005 S60, S80, V70, XC70, and XC90s operated in warm climates due to the possibility of crack developing in the fuel pump's flange when exposed to hot temperatures (and thermal cycling) combined with varying fuel quality. A compromised flange may leak fuel and/or result in a fire. Owners are instructed to bring their vehicles into the dealer for inspection. If the part is defective, Volvo will replaced it with modified flange at no charge. The recall campaign is scheduled to begin in January 2010. The recall also includes 5,253 MY 2010 XC60s on a separate issue, still revolving around the fuel system in which a fuel line rail cover designed to protect the fuel lines on the XC60 may be improperly attached, thus exposing the lines to damage. The damaged pieces may leak, possibly resulting in a fire. Owners of the affected models are asked to bring their vehicles to the dealer for inspection and/or a repair at no charge. The recall campaign is scheduled to begin in January 2010. The first issue is filed under NHTSA Recall Campaign ID 09V483000 PE09039 while the second issue is filed under NHTSA Recall Campaign ID 09V477000. [3]
