Volvo Has Recalled the 1999 S80
- Volvo Has
Recalled the 1999 S80 because the electrical cooling fans may be inadequate
in a hot climate
Potential Number of Units Affected: 25876
Manufactured: 04/1998 - 05/1999
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. CERTAIN ELECTRIC COOLING FANS COULD
BE INADEQUATE IN A HOT CLIMATE. UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES, EXCESSIVE HEAT
COULD BE GENERATED.
SHOULD THIS OCCUR, THE ENGINE COOLING FAN COMPONENTS COULD OVERHEAT AND

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ENGINE COOLING FAN. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED
TO BEGIN DURING APRIL 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED

auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA

If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
