Due to a potential fire risk that might be happened on the 2012 Volvo S60 sedan and a XC60 crossover, the Swedish automaker is having a program to recall those two models. Volvo is now recalling nearly 3,000 S60 and XC60 models in the United States. Thus, you who are the owners of the models can make use of this good chance.
The automaker said that the vehicles which are recalled are the S60 sedans produced between January 10 this year and February 3 2012. On the other hand the Volvo X60 models were created from January 10 to 26, 2012. The total vehicles that have undergone the safety recall are as much 2,742 units consist of both S60 and XC60.
Volvo also has launched a document that posted on the website of the National Hightway Traffic Safety Administration. The official document stated that “An incorrect mixture of underbody coating and over-application can result in rigid, icicle-like areas hanging from vehicle’s undercarriage. If this condition exists, the underbody coating may penetrate the fuels lines and cause fuel leakage, increasing the risk of a fire”.
For the recall, the company has mandated its dealers across United States to inspect the cars undercarriage. They will remove the excessive underbody coating in the fuel line area if it is found, while the fuel lines will be replaced if it is damaged indeed. The recall is expected to be held on the April 13. Well, that is a good attempt from Volvo. It is better to prevent before there is really an S60 or XC60 caught on fire.
