US:Volvo recalls 460,000 cars globally

Volvo recalls 460,000 cars globally


DETROIT -- Volvo is recalling 460,000 vehicles globally because of defective radiator cooling fans that can overheat and cause fires, the automaker said on Monday.

The recall affects 1999-2001 model-year S60, S80 cars and the V70 and V70 Cross Country wagons.

Around 150,000 cars are being recalled in the United States, Volvo spokesman James Hope said.

Other large markets affected are Sweden, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

Volvo is part of the Premier Automotive Group, Ford Motor Co.'s stable of luxury European brands.

The defective cooling fan units in U.S. cars have led to seven fires, Hope said. No injuries have been linked to the recall, he added.

Volvo S80 and V70 cars from the 1999-2001 model years have been recalled in the United States previously for other defects.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
