Volvo XC90 Recall

the outer tie rod ball join can "deform at high loads"

May 11, 2006
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling 108,766 Volvo XC90 vehicles from the 2003 to 2006 model years because a ball joint may fail, which could lead to a crash.

NHTSA reports that the outer tie rod ball join can "deform at high loads" which may "eventually lead to a fatigue fracture for the outer tie rod ball joint."

As a result, NHTSA warns that the vehicle will be difficult to drive or maneuver and that will increase the risk of a crash.

Volvo dealers will replace the ball joint tie rods free of charge when the recall gets under way this month.

Volvo owners may contact the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or call Volvo at 1-800-458-4236.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
