Volvo set to recall more than 30,000 vehicles

Even the car manufacturers with the best reliability for safety and security run into issues from time to time. This has been brought to light lately, with Volvo Cars of North America announcing that it would recall approximately 31,000 vehicles related to issues with low oil pressure warning systems.

Many of our California readers are familiar with the popularity of Volvo automobiles throughout the state. Even those who have never driven one of these cars are well aware of the fact that they are supposed to be among the safest on the road.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this particular recall involves vehicles made between June 22, 2010, and May 14, 2012, and impacts those from the 2011-2012 model year. Regulators also noted that the only vehicles affected are those with a 5-cylinder B5254TS engine.

All auto defects, such as this one, must be addressed without delay. With this particular problem, the driver may not be alerted of a situation in which his or her car has low oil pressure. As a result, the vehicle could stall which could lead to an accident.

To ensure that owners are not put out, Volvo has agreed to fix this problem free of charge.

Volvo has a long standing reputation for providing high quality vehicles that are among the safest that the industry has to offer. However, this time around the company made a mistake that could lead to trouble on the road. The good thing is that Volvo is cooperating with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to take care of the issue.
