2012 VOLVO S60 SEDAN
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Volvo is recalling certain 2012 model year Volvo S60 sedans because of a potential problem with the fuel pump assembly. This time, the recall affects 448 S60 saloons built from January 18, 2011, through January 28, 2011.
The Swedish automaker informed the safety agency that the male part of the fuel line quick connector end shape was produced with dimensions out of specification and could detach from the engine. If this were to occur, the engine could stall while the driver may also notice a fuel smell and leakage, which could result in a fire.
By the news, dealers will replace the fuel lines free of charge with the recall expected to begin this month. The previous recall action on the 2012MY S60 was issued on May 26 and concerned vehicles manufactured from November 18, 2010, through May 5, 2011, to update the fuel pump software because it may not be compatible with all the fuel pumps and components resulting in insufficient fuel transfer in the pump unit.
