Infiniti V70 Recall Information


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

OCTOBER 2010 -- Volvo is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 S80, XC70, model year 2011 XC60 and model year 2010 V70 vehicles. There may be an intermittent fault in the driver's airbag clockspring wiring connector for the supplemental restraint system. In the event of a crash, the driver's frontal airbag may not deploy as intended or at all, and therefore will not be able to properly protect the driver, increasing the risk of injuries. Dealers will install a metal shim in the driver's air bag clockspring wiring connector. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on October 20, 2010.   10V-489

JUNE 2009 -- Volvo is recalling 17,614 Y 2008-2009 S80, V70, and XC70 vehicles. The engine cooling fan may stop working due to a software programming error in the fan control module (FCM). Depending on driving conditions, the customer may experience reduced air conditioning performance, and/or rapid increase in engine coolant temperature. This situation may result in loss of cooling system function and engine failure. The driver may not have sufficient time to react to the warning light(s) or the text message in the instrument panel, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fan control module free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July 2009.  09V-218

JANUARY 2008 -- Volvo is recalling 1,900 MY 2008 V70 and XC70 vehicles equipped with rear integrated booster seats for failing to comply with the labeling requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." Labels on the affected vehicles are missing warning information indicating that 'death or serious injury can occur' if the manufacturer's instructions are not followed when using child restraint systems. This standard specifies requirements for child restraint systems used in motor vehicles and aircraft for the purpose of reducing the number of children killed or injured in motor vehicle crashes and in aircraft.
