Volvo has issued a recall of 7,558 S60 models due to faulty software in the fuel pump unit. The luxury sedan, released in the 2012 model year, has been in production since 2000.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Volvo has issued a recall of the model S60 manufactured from November 18, 2010 through May 5, 2011. The recall was issued because “the software used for the fuel pump unit may not be compatible with all fuel pumps and components.” This can cause insufficient fuel transfer and lead to engine stalling even when there is a sufficient amount of gasoline in the tank. According to the NHTSA, this could increase chances of an accident.
Customers owning an affected vehicle will be notified by Volvo. The recall is staged to begin in mid to late June, with Volvo dealerships handling the upgrades to the engine control module software at no cost to the customer.
