Summary
Volvo is recalling certain model year 2012 S60 passenger cars manufactured from January 18, 2011, through January 28, 2011. The male part of the fuel line quick connector end shape was produced with dimensions out of specification, leading to excessive assembly force on the female connector assembly and the possibility that the locking function may not be engaged.
Actions
Volvo dealers will replace the fuel lines free of charge. The safety recall began on June 24, 2011. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-201-768-7300.
