Volvo has issued a recall for just 13 of its 2011 S40 models and while the number of vehicles affected may be small, the issue is not. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the cars may have a crack in a support member found the engine bay, which could reduce the vehicle’s ability to withstand an impact in the case of a crash.
Volvo will inspect the affected vehicles and if no crack is detected no action is required, however, if a crack is found, Volvo will replace the car with similar model.
Volvo will notify customers by April 15th and those with questions are asked to call the automaker’s customer care center at 1-800-458-1552.
