20,000 Cars Recalled Because of Misplaced Label Information
News sources state that vehicles from 2006 through 2012 manufactured by Volvo are being recalled. This happened due to a possible misplacement of the right labels for the inflation pressure in the tires.
The manufacturer claims that there is a significantly decreasing number of new cars coming from the factory with spare tires. The recalled vehicle models and years of manufacturing are listed in the document issued by the company along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The car maker declared that the spare tires were installed not at their facilities but either at the port or at the dealerships. Due to a possible issue with the labeling at these various locations, the proper inflation pressure information wasn’t available. Without the proper repair, drivers may have to deal with tire failure, which may lead to accidents.
Volvo has made a notification to all drivers that the proper information regarding tire maintenance can be found in the owner’s manual. After the recall issue, Volvo car dealers will inspect the vehicles and make the necessary modifications for their owners, free of charge.
