Volvo Recalls S60s To Reprogram Fuel Pumps

Volvo is recalling certain model S60 sport sedans from the 2012 model year to fix their fuel-pumps.

The recall, which affects 7,558 vehicles built from Nov. 18, 2010 through May 5, 2011, is part of a growing trend toward recalls for defects that are corrected with software upgrades instead of hand or power tools.

In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the car maker said the fuel pump software may not be compatible with all the fuel pumps in some cars and may not deliver fuel properly.

As a result, drivers may sense engine hesitation in some driving conditions, and in some cases the engine may stall as if the car has run out of fuel. Such sudden stalls increase the risk of a crash.

Volvo says it will notify owners about the recall, which is to begin about June 17. Dealers will upgrade the engine control module software free of charge.
