Volvo S40 Recalls
Seven vehicles are being recalled because a crack may develop on a structural support in the engine compartment. Cracking of this support can affect crash performance, increasing the risk of injury.
On a manual transmission, the gear shifter may be loose where it fastens to the transmission. This may cause loss of shifting and vehicle control.
Some vehicles have a power steering hose that may rupture because of a manufacturing defect. If the hose ruptures, there would be a rapid loss of power steering fluid and power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash.
The master cylinder is the heart of the brake system. This is where the fluid is forced out to each wheel to activate each brake. On some vehicles, this master cylinder may leak internally and cause poor braking performance.
