Volvo recalling 42,000 XC90 models in the US

Volvo said Thursday that it will be recalling 42,000 2005 XC90 models due to potential short circuits in the battery. Recalled cars will be checked to see if they are safe and will provided with stickers to owners oo how to avoid risk of short circuit.

There have been no reports of short circuiting in the vehicles, Volvo Cars spokeswoman Maria Bohlin said.

The jack crank handle is incorrectly placed in the trunk of the XC90 next to the battery and if the two come into contact, it can cause a fire.

Bohlin declined to say how much the recalls will cost the company.
