Volvo XC70 Recall 07V566000

Missing Information on Tire Pressure Label

Recall Details

Certain vehicles were manufactured with a tire information label missing the wheel size information. Owners will be provided with a new label and installation instructions. Dealers will install the new label for owners who would rather not install their own. This recall is expected to begin by January 31, 2009. The Volvo recall number is 186.

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.
