Recall Alert: 2006-2012 Volvo C70, 2011-2012 Volvo S60


(Cars.com)

Volvo is recalling about 7,000 2006-12 C70 convertibles and roughly 12,600 2011-12 S60 midsize sedans — the recently redesigned model — because the optional spare tire kit has incorrect label information, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected cars, there are incorrect tire and loading information labels, according to Volvo. The misinformation can lead to improper tire inflation and result in a tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will install a correct label, when necessary. For more info, owners can call Volvo at 201-768-7300 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
