Volvo Recalls 71,000 Cars to Check for Fuel Leaks
Volvo Cars is recalling 71,000 new V40 and S40 models worldwide to check for a possible fuel leak in the engine, a spokesman said Saturday.
Owners of 2003 and 2004 models have been notified by mail and asked to bring their cars to the closest Volvo repair shop, Volvo Cars spokesman Bo Larsen said.
The recall includes about 15,000 cars in the United States, 9,000 in Sweden and 8,000 in Britain.
Larsen said a handful of owners complained of drivability problems due to a leak from the fuel rail. He said no fires resulted and that the recall was precautionary.
U.S.-based Ford Motor Co. bought Volvo Cars in 1999.

My next Ford.....
