Today we have another vehicle recall for you to read about, the good news is that Toyota are not in the headlines for the wrong reasons this time, instead Volvo are at fault.
There is a problem with 3,635 Volvo S80s which were sold between 2007 and 2010, apparently the maximum tire pressure which is displayed on the door jam and in the user manual is incorrect.
In some V-6 S80s the maximum tire pressure should read 35 psi, however it actually reads 36 psi, also in some V-8 models the maximum tire pressure should read 36 psi, however it should be 38 psi.
I must say that this recall is probably one of the least serious problems we have seen in recent times, however at least it shows that Volvo care about their customers. Volvo has also stated that this recall was the result of a discovery by the company’s own engineers and was not the result of a customer complaint.
If you are unsure as to what you should do if you are affected contact Volvo at 800-458-1552, alternatively you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
