Volvo Recall 251: Excessive Underbody Coating

2012 Volvo S60

If this condition exists, the underbody coating may penetrate the fuels lines and cause fuel leakage, increasing the risk of a fire.

Structure — Body

Summary
Volvo is recalling certain model year 2012 S60 and XC60 passenger vehicles. An incorrect mixture of underbody coating and over-application can result in rigid, icicle-like areas hanging from vehicle's undercarriage.
Actions
Dealers will inspect the vehicle undercarriage, and if excessive underbody coating is found in the fuel line area, it will be removed. If the inspection reveals that the fuel lines are damaged, they will be replaced. The safety recall began on April 25, 2012. Owners may contact Volvo customer care center at 1-800-458-1552.
