Volvo began recalling 2,337 vehicles in China on Wednesday to fix problems that could pose safety risks, China’s quality watchdog said. The recall affects 280 imported XC60 vehicles and 318 imported S60’s.
The cars are manufactured between Jan. 20 and Jan. 28, 2011, as well as 1,739 imported XC90 vehicles manufactured between Jan. 29 and Aug. 16, 2010, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said in a statement on its website.
Volvo said some faulty components of the affected cars might cause fuel leaks, and even might develop into a fire in worst-case scenarios.
The statement said owners could contact the auto maker at hotline numbers 400-678-1200 or 010-59799616. Manufacturers will repair the faulty components at no charge.
