Volvo is recalling 3,635 2007 to 2010 Volvo S80s due to incorrect tire pressure listed in the owner’s manual. Instead of a maximum tire pressure of 35 psi, Volvo S80s with the V-6 should actually have a tire pressure of 36 psi. For the V-8, the 36 psi listed should be 38 psi.
It sounds silly on its face. But setting aside what we have been told about the correct tire pressure in our tires reducing our dependence on foreign oil, tire pressure matters when it comes to avoiding rollover accidents. This recall is also incredibly inexpensive for Volvo and it makes them look like what they apparently are: a company that is stepping forward to fix all problems big and small.
