2001 Volvo S60 Recalls

Volvo Recalls Garmin 760 Portable GPS-Equipped Vehicles Due to Overheating Battery

Volvo is recalling all models equipped with Garmin 760 Portable Global Positioning System units because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Volvo advises owners to stop using the Garmin device immediately and consult the Garmin website to determine if they have a defective unit. The unit's battery will be replaced and a spacer inserted to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

Vehicles in Warm Weather Climates May Develop a Fuel Leak

When exposed to certain environmental conditions (hot climate and temperature cycling) over time and in combination with varying fuel quality, the fuel pump can develop cracks in the fuel pump flange. If cracks develop, a fuel smell and/or leak may be noted. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump as necessary to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R220.

Recall 07V152000
ON CERTAIN VEHICLES ORIGINALLY SOLD IN OR CURRENTLY REGISTERED IN THE STATES OF ARIZONA AND NEVADA, DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF FUEL QUALITY AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS, THE FUEL PUMP MAY, IN CERTAIN CASES, EXPERIENCE A REDUCED FUNCTIONALITY. THE MOST COMMON SYMPTOMS WOULD BE FUEL ODOR.

I got a 2001 Volvo s60 and I love it it's been good to me
I had a volvo S60T5 with the five speed manual. Until i werecked it in a car/truck accident it was stupendous. Loved it. No issues of any kind. I replaced it with an automatic V70 t5, which has been a constant headache. nothing but a money pit, and "ll never buy another. Its strange what a difference a manual transmission will make.
