Recall Alert: 136,100 Volvo Cars, SUVs

2005VolvoXC60
Volvo is recalling 136,100 vehicles from the 2001 to 2005 model years, including almost every vehicle in its lineup from those years. The issue stems from a fuel pump that can develop cracks when you mix fuel types and live in a hot climate or one that sees rapid changes in temperature.

Affected models include:
  • 2001-2004 Volvo S60
  • 2002-2005 Volvo S80
  • 2001-2004 Volvo V70
  • 2001-2004 Volvo XC70
  • 2003-2005 Volvo XC90
The states included in the recall are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

Dealers will inspect the vehicle and if a defective pump is present, the specific part named in the recall will be replaced for free starting in January 2010. You can contact Volvo for more information at 800-458-1552.

Can't recall any recalls prior to the Ford buyout of Volvo. GM ruined Saab, I guess Ford will do the same to Volvo.
