Problems stick even to the most important auto makers in the world, like Volvo and Toyota recently found out.
More than 8.000 units of the S60 Volvo made from March 8, 2006 to May 16, 2007 will be affected by the recall. According to the manufacturer, the S60 sedan has power steering reservoir hoses that are incorrectly routed and an increased pressure in the system could appear which will lead to a loss in power steering fluid making the vehicle difficult to maneuver.
Volvo will inspect the 8.406 cars which will be recalled sometime in August this year. The replacing of the hose will be free of charge.
Toyota is also recalling 32 cars of its 2011 Lexus RX350 crossovers because of a calibration error of the VDIM (Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management).
The problem may cause the right front wheel to work improperly when the ABS or the VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) are engaged and could lead into a crash because of the increased stopping distances or decreased skid correction.
The Toyota recall will also begin in August this year and the Lexus dealers will replace the VDIM system free of charge. The recall will affect 32 cars manufactured between August 30, 2010 and May the 18th, 2011.
