Volvo has issued a recall for seven 2011 Volvo S40s over a production error, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. On the affected seven units, a crack may have formed on the top side of the passenger side support member in the engine compartment. The crack could reduce the S40’s crash performance. The structural crack isn’t evident, so it’s imperative to have the vehicle inspected. We’ve provided the affected VINs below.
Volvo dealers will inspect for cracks in the engine compartment for free. If cracks are revealed, the vehicle will be replaced free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 15.. For more info, owners may call Volvo at 800-458-1552 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.
