Recall Alert: Volvo S80

Posted: Aug 03, 2010

In these recall-heavy times, even the smallest details are getting checked to make sure no faults exist.

Volvo just recently announced that it will be recalling 3,635 2007-2010 Volvo S80 models for a typo. “It seems that the maximum permissible tire pressure information was printed incorrectly in the owner's manuals and on the sticker pasted to the vehicles' door jams,” says Autoblog. “Worse, that same incorrect inflation data is hard-coded into the cars' tire-pressure monitoring systems.”

What are the real specs?

“Instead of a maximum tire pressure of 35 psi, S80s with the V-6 should be listed as 36 psi. For the V-8, the 36 psi listed is wrong; it should be 38 psi,” reports USA Today.

In order to correct this issue the National Highway and Traffic Administration (NHTSA) says, “Dealers will update the vehicles with a new tire and loading information label, owner’s manual label and TPMS software.”

This service will of course be free of charge. Those seeking more information can contact the NHTSA via their hot line at 888-327-4236 or Volvo at 800-458-1552.
