Volvo made a bit of a mistake with their 2007-2010 S80s; it turns out that the tire pressure labels affixed to the vehicles are incorrect, and so is the information inputted into the tire pressure monitoring system.

Volvo will replace the stickers and re-flash the TPMS software, and encourages owners to contact them at 1-800-458-1552 or email customercare -at- volvoforlife.com. Volvo claims to have found the problem itself, and fortunately, nobody has been injured as a result of this.
