Volvo is recalling the 2007 S80 built between March 2006 and May 2007 due to the power steering reservoir return hoses that may been incorrectly routed.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an incorrectly routed hose can result in increased pressure within the power steering. If there is a failure, it’s possible for the hose to burst, resulting in a loss of power steering, increasing the risk of a crash. Volvo will begin contacting owners in August, and any necessary repairs will be performed free of charge. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-201-768-7300.
