Our Quick Take:
The engine could stall unexpectedly because the software in the engine compute is too sensitive.
What Should You Do?
Volvo will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning December 10, 2010. If you are experiencing an engine stalling condition, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call. The Volvo recall number is R234.
The engine computer is programed to shut off the fuel system under certain conditions. The software has been determined to be too sensitive and may cause the engine to stall under normal driving conditions. This recall involves updating the software in the engine and transmission control modules to correct this condition.
