Volvo to Recall MY 2012 S60

June 08, 2011

WASHINGTON - Volvo Cars of North America is recalling 7,558 model-year 2012 S60 passenger cars because of a potential problem with the software controlling the fuel pump units.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the software for the fuel pump units may not be compatible with all fuel pumps and components, resulting in insufficient fuel transfer in the pump unit. Under certain driving conditions, this could lead to engine hesitation and possible engine stall -- even though the fuel gauge indicates up to one-quarter of a tank of fuel left. This poses a safety risk.

The vehicles covered by this recall were all manufactured from Nov. 18 of last year to May 5 of this year.

To remedy the problem, Volvo dealers will upgrade the engine control module software free of charge. The safety recall is expected to get under way around June 17.

Vehicle owners can reach Volvo at (201) 768-7300.
