RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
The tire information label on the driver's side rear door was printed without the wheel size information. Vehicles equipped with the incorrect sized wheels and/or tires may have an increased risk of tire failure, which could lead to a crash.
What Should You Do?
This could be considered a medium priority recall, increasing to high if the vehicle's wheels and tires are not original equipment. Owners will be provided a correct label and installation instructions. If you do not receive a new label and feel you should, please contact your Volvo dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
