2008 Volvo V70 Recalls
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.
The engine cooling fan may stop working without warning due to a software error. Depending on the conditions, the occupants may experience reduced air conditioning performance and/or rapid heating of the engine temperature. The driver may not have sufficient time to react to the warning lights before engine failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fan control module free of charge. The recall began July, 2009. The Volvo recall number is R214.
Certain vehicles equipped with integrated child booster seats were assembled with warning labels that did not include the statement, "Death or serious injury can occur" if child safety systems are not used according to the manufacturer's instructions. Dealers will install new warning labels as necessary. The recall is expected to begin on February 20, 2008. The Volvo recall number is 189.
