Volvo is recalling thousands of vehicles to address a problem with the fuel pump, according to news reports .
Nearly 7,588 2012 S60 vehicles because the fuel pump might lead to engine hesitation and stalling even if the fuel gauge indicates it is filled with gasoline, according to news reports. The vehicles were produced from November 2010 to May 2011.
The problem lies in the software for the fuel pump, according to news reports.
“The problem, per recall campaign number 11V303000 (Volvo recall campaign number R243), is with the software that controls the fuel pumps–it turns out it’s not compatible with some of the fuel pumps installed in the new cars, and could cause the engine to hesitate or stall even with as much as 1/4 tank of fuel remaining.”
No reports of car accidents or personal injuries have been reported in connection to the recall.
As a Beaufort car accident attorney , I urge drivers with this vehicle to get it fixed as soon as possible to avoid any future car accidents or personal injuries. Volvo said it will notify owners of the recalled vehicles beginning June 17. I’m glad Volvo was able to recall this vehicle before any car accidents or injuries occurred. Volvo will replace the faulty fuel pump and fix the problems related to the recall for free.
