Volvo is recalling 6,046 2011 model year vehicles due to potential engine stalling, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2011 model year vehicles include the Volvo S80, S60, XC70 and XC60.
“The software calibration for the fuel cutoff functionality in the engine control module is too sensitive,” said NHTSA in its recalls summary of the problem. “Sudden engine stall could occur, increasing the risk of a crash.”
To fix the issue all the recalled models will get an updated software from Volvo free of charge. Volvo will start notifying owners starting Dec. 10. Owners can call Volvo at 800-458-1552 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
