Volvo recalls faulty cars. The Volvo Car Corporation says it’s chosen to recall thousands of vehicles in Norway after having discovered a potentially dangerous mechanical fault. 2,190 motorists are driving round with faulty tensioners that cause premature wear and tear to the generator belt. Though car owners may only notice a noise the problem could, at worst, lead to a total loss of power steering brought on by engine power failure.

2,190 motorists are driving round with faulty tensioners that cause premature wear and tear to the generator belt.

Though car owners may only notice a noise the problem could, at worst, lead to a total loss of power steering brought on by engine power failure.

 “The recall affects 2009 models of the S80, V70, XC60, and XC70,” Tore Løving, Volvo’s Information Manager tells The Foreigner.

Volvo has already had to recall 866 other types of 2010/11models with a manual gearbox recently.
