The Swedish based automaker Volvo has recently announced a recall involving its C70 and S60 models for faulty information contained within the vehicle’s optional spare tire kit and even if this doesn’t seem to be something important, Volvo still wants to make the safest cars in the industry.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall will affect some C70 models in 2006 – 2012 model years, made between November 15, 2005 and July 31, 2011, along with the S60s made between July 14, 2012 and April 16, 2011.
The NHTSA didn’t receive any complaints about the problem containing misinformation about the proper tire pressure for the spare tire and there are no reports about accidents or injuries because of this issue. However, Volvo says that a serious accident could follow because overinflated and underinflated tires can be a real problem.
The Swedish based automaker says that owners of the above mentioned models will be announced soon and the Volvo dealerships will inspect and replace the information label in the spare tire kit free of charge.
If you have any questions about this recall you can contact the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 or Volvo at 201-768-7300.
