What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Volvo must be performed by a Volvo dealership. Volvo notified known owners of affected vehicles in September, 2015. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Volvo dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
