Recall Alert: 2013 Volvo S80 and XC70

By Jennifer Geiger  on September 4, 2012
Volvo is recalling 300 model-year 2013 versions of the S80 sedan and XC70 wagon because of problems with the tire pressure monitoring system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

A software error may prevent the tire pressure warning system from alerting the driver when a tire is low on air. Underinflated tires could result in a blowout and possible crash.

Volvo has not yet provided an owner notification schedule, but dealers will replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Volvo at -800-458-1552 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
