TPMS Issue Leads to US Volvo Recall
In the US Volvo is recalling more than 3,600 vehicles in its S80 range built between 2007 and 2010 due to a TPMS related issue. The US National Highway Transport Safety Administration reports that certain vehicles in the S80 range were sold to customers with incorrect maximum tyre inflation pressure on their tyre and loading information label and in their user manual. Furthermore, the vehicles’ tyre pressure monitoring system software is set to trigger at the incorrect level. As a consequence, the NHTSA states these vehicles do not meet the required safety standards. Volvo dealers will replace the label, owner’s manual label and TPMS software free of charge.
