Infiniti V50 Recall Information


NOVEMBER 2010 -- Volvo is recalling certain passenger vehicles equipped with power front passenger seats. The front seat rail's detection system was manufactured incorrectly and may permit the passenger to forward the seat beyond the intended maximum. Positioning of the seat beyond the intended maximum can cause increased risk of injury to the passenger in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front passenger side seat rails for the presence of an "end stop" and repair the vehicles as necessary free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule.   10V-591

NOVEMBER 2010 -- Volvo is recalling certain vehicles equipped with Garmin 760 portable Global Positioning System (GPS) units because the batteries on those units may overheat. An overheated battery could lead to a fire. Volvo advises owners to please stop using the Garmin portable GPS device immediately, and visit the Garmin website to determine if their unit is affected. The unit's battery will be replaced with a new battery and a spacer will be inserted on top of the battery next to the PCB. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on November 18, 2010.   10V-566

JUNE 2010 -- Volvo is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 C30, model year 2010 S40 and V50 vehicles equipped with 6 speed manual transmissions. The gearshift lever stud assembly may not have been tightened to the correct specification during assembly. If the gearshift lever cable or stud assembly becomes loose, it may not be possible to engage, disengage or shift gears. This condition can increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Dealers will torque the gearshift lever stud assembly to the correct specification free of charge. The safety recall began on June 14, 2010.   10V-255

JULY  2008 --  Volvo is recalling 1,020 MY 2008-2009 S40, V50, C30, C70 vehicles. A section of the power steering return line hose was not properly cured and does not meet specifications. The power steering hoses were manufactured in France. If the power steering return hose fails, a sudden rupture of the hose can occur. This can result in a rapid drainage of the power steering fluid in the system and a complete loss of power assistance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the steering return line hose assembly. The recall is expected to begin during August 2008.  08V329

APRIL 2008 -- Volvo is recalling 7 MY 2008 V50 passenger vehicles equipped with roof rails. Bolts have been found to be out of specification. This has caused less tread length on the bolts which in turn has lead to insufficient clamping force in the joint due to the washer getting stuck when tightening the bolts. When carrying roof cargo, the rails may come loose during heavy braking and/or sudden stops increasing the possibility of a crash. Due to the limited number of vehicles involved, owners have been notified and will have the roof rail bolts replaced free of charge.  08V197

MARCH  2008 -- Volvo is recalling 1,114 MY 2007 C30, C70, S40, and V50 passenger vehicles. A soft anodized layer in the master cylinder may trigger early wear on a rubber seal that can result in internal leakage of brake fluid. If affected, the driver may experience reduced brake performance when applying and maintaining force of the brake pedal. The capacity to brake will gradually deteriorate forcing the driver to use a higher than expected force on the brake pedal when compared to an intact brake system. The deterioration can eventually result in complete loss of the brake system functionality increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the master cylinder. The brake master cylinder and brake fluid reservoir will be replaced and certain brake lines cleaned. The recall is expected to begin during April 2008.  08V101

JANUARY 2008 -- Volvo is recalling 23,000 MY 2004-2006 S40 and V50 vehicles sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. Reoccurring, long-term exposure to certain environmental conditions such as salty-wet conditions, it is possible for the pump electronic module (PEM) to become corroded internally. This can cause a faulty signal to the fuel pump, resulting in low or no fuel pressure to the engine. If this occurs, the check engine light may illuminate. In some cases, the vehicle may fail to start or may stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the PEM and install it in a new location to prevent corrosion. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. 08V-033
