Vehicles Affected: Approximately 8,000 model-year 2016 Volvo S60 sedans, V60 wagons, V60 Cross Country wagons, XC60 SUVs, XC70 wagons and S80 sedans manufactured between April 8 and Aug. 19, 2015
The Problem: In certain driving conditions when using the automatic engine stop-start function, the starter motor fuse may blow, preventing the car from restarting when necessary. If the vehicle is unexpectedly unable to be started while in traffic, such as when stopped at an intersection, the risk of a crash increases.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the existing starter motor fuse with a higher-amperage fuse for free.
What Owners Should Do: Volvo will begin notifying owners Oct. 12. Owners can call the automaker at 800-458-1552, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
