In the United States, safety car recalls must be performed at no charge to the customer.  Car manufacturers are required by law to mail notices of car recalls to owners and dealers.

Notices get lost in the mail or discarded as junk mail.  Even after these attempts to notify customers, only 72% of owners affected by safety issue car recalls have the recall work completed for Volvo Recalls .

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regularly announces vehicle safety car recalls in an effort to inform and urge owners to get problems repaired quickly.  

Car Accident Advice often obtains recall notices before dealers and owners.  The NHTSA recommends that you wait for the mailed bulletin to arrive before requesting the work to be done.    However, you can ask your Volvo  Recalls dealer when the next recall update notice is expected at their shop.

For the most current information about Volvo  Recalls contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Auto Safety Hotline:   1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236)

Summary:  Volvo Recalls
On certain passenger vehicles, the front control arms may not have been manufactured correctly and, as a result, the stud and nut that secure the arm to the spindle may lose their initial axial tension. Under certain driving conditions, the steering may become less responsive and the driver may experience steering wheel play. This driving condition could eventually lead to separation between the front control arm and the spindle, which could result in a crash.

Remedy: Volvo Recalls
The manufacturer has not yet provided NHTSA with an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.
