Volvo recalls 2011 and 2012 S60 vehicles

Vehicle can fail to warn of low oil pressure situation.


Volvo Cars of North America, LLC is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 S60 vehicles manufactured June 22, 2010, through May 14, 2012, and equipped with 5-cylinder B5254T5 (VIN code 62) engines, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In the affected vehicles, the vehicle may not alert the driver of a low oil pressure situation.

Without being warned of a low oil pressure situation, the driver may continue to drive the vehicle until it stalls, which increases the risk of a crash.

Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle's software so that the driver is alerted should there be a low oil pressure situation, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin around the end of December 2013. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552. Volvo's number for this campaign is R29436.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
