Volvo Issues Recall on Over 30,000 Vehicles
Posted on behalf of Edwards Law Firm on Jan 03, 2014 in Auto Accidents
Volvo Cars of North America, LLC is recalling 30,929 model-year 2011-2012 S60 vehicles manufactured between June 22, 2010 and May 14, 2012. These vehicles include a 5-cylinder B5254T5 engine, which is reported to not alert the driver when a low oil-pressure situation occurs, therefore resulting in the vehicle stalling, and increasing the drivers risk of an accident.
The Swedish premium automobile manufacturer has been one of the leading companies for including the most innovative safety features in its vehicles for decades. However, as of recent, its reputation for safety may be threatened as this massive recall, along with another recall, which occurred less than a year ago, are in the public eye.
In 2013, Volvo issued a recall on 7,767 2014 S60, S80, XC60, and XC70 model vehicles in the United States because of a software problem. This software problem caused the headlights and turn signals to malfunction, therefore increasing the risk of a collision.
All owners of these vehicles are able to have their vehicles software updated, free of charge, to avoid a low oil-pressure situation, or malfunctioning headlights and turn signals. For more information, owners are encouraged to contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552, or our law firm at 800-304-9246.
