Volvo Recall, Gearbox Problems
The guys from Volvo have to enter in recall in service trend. Fortunately, for a minor problem, which affects Volvo C30, Volvo S40 and Volvo V50 products in 2010-2011 period.
On “Little strokes fell great oaks”, the Volvo engineers have discovered a small problem, which, in extreme cases could cause accidents. Until now, however, was not the case for it.
More specifically, there is inadequate tightening of the screw at the gearbox lever. Therefore, the cable control lever gearbox may be weakening, with direct consequences for the conduct of the box.
Simply mean, if you’re in a gear, you can not change gear (so, if necessary, you can not move to “neutral”), on the other hand there is misfortune that if you are in neutral, no longer can engage step I or II, so you can not leave this place.
The resolving of the problem, however, is very simple: the dealers will use screw tightness troublesome in service, free for all owners of Volvo cars affected. It’s about compact-class models products in 2010-2011 period, more exactly C30, S40 and V50.
Perhaps the emotions on takeover Volvo by Geely are to blame …
It seems that any automaker not escape by the famous recall.
