FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE: DELIVERY: FUEL PUMP

1/2/2008 - FORT LAUDERDALE, FL
MY CAR GIVES OFF A STRONG GAS/FUEL SMELL, WHICH IS NOT COMING FROM UNDER THE HOOD, BUT CAN BE SMELLED BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE CAR. IT HAS ABOUT 74,000 MILES ON IT, AND IS LESS THAN 8 YEARS OLD. I NOTICED THE SMELL NOW FOR MANY MONTHS, WHICH CONTINUES TO GET STRONGER. I SAW THAT THERE IS A RECALL FOR THE CARS IN ARIZONA AND NEVADA, BUT I LIVE IN FLORIDA, WHERE IT CAN GET PRETTY HOT AS WELL. I BELIEVE THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE FUEL PUMP. THIS PROBLEM MUST BE HAPPENING QUITE OFTEN WITH OTHER VOLVO S60S. THE PROBLEM MAY STEM FROM A POORLY DESIGNED PLASTIC PUMP HOUSING. I TOOK THE CAR IN FOR THE VOLVO ETM WARRANTY PROGRAM ON 08/15/07 THINKING THAT THE FUEL SMELL WOULD BE CORRECTED WHEN THEY FIXED THE EMISSION SYSTEM PROBLEM. THE DEALER'S RECEIPT INDICATES THEY PERFORMED A FUEL INDUCTION SERVICE BECAUSE OF THROTLE BODY DIRT, BUT THE FUEL SMELL HAS ONLY GOTTEN WORSE. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO SPEND $$$ TO HAVE IT REPAIRED, WHEN IT IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT. WHAT CAN I DO?

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE: DELIVERY: FUEL PUMP

12/9/2007 - HIALEAH, FL
2001 VOLVO S60 FAILURE OF GAS PUMP. STRONG GAS ODOR LEAKING GAS THRU TOP OF PUMP, HARD TO START, DANGEROUS LEADING TO HAZARDOUS EVENTS. VOLVO ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL PUMP BUT ONLY OFFERS A RECALL IN TWO STATES THEY CONSIDER TO HAVE HOT CLIMATES. I LIVE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND THEY DO NOT CONSIDER THIS TO BE A RECALL STATE. LET ME TELL YOU IT IS OVER 80 DEGREES IN WINTER TIME AND WELL OVER HIGH 90'S IN SUMMER AND OVER 100 IF YOU FACTOR IN THE HUMIDITY. I FIXED THE CAR IT COST ME $642.01, I WOULD LIKE FOR VOLVO TO PAY ME BACK. THE COST OF THE PUMP AND SEAL WERE $400.00 ALONE. I THINK THAT AS A CONSUMER I SHOULD BE PROTECTED NOT ONLY THAT, BUT WHAT IS VOLVO WAITING TO WARN PEOPLE OF THIS DEFFECT. THIS IS A DEADLY SITUATION DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SOMEBODY DIES FOR YOU TO TAKE ACTION, THE FIRE AND GAS INHALATION ARE CATASTROPHIC. I HAVE ALL THE PAPER WORK I WOULD LIKE TO GET MY MONEY BACK AND I WOULD LIKE FOR THE OWNERS OF VOLVO'S TO BE AWARE OF THIS SITUATION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT FOR SOMEBODY OR A FAMILY TO DIE BEFORE YOPU TAKE ACTION.

MY VOLVO S60 IS IDLING VERY ROUGH. IT IS NOT SHOWING ANY CODES BUT I SUSPECT IT'S THE ETM. AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH ON VEXED'S WEBSITE I HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THIS CAR DUE TO THE IMPROPER DESIGN OF THE ETM MADE BY MAGNETI MARELLI. I'M HOPING STEPHEN MCHENRY WILL GET VOLVO TO REDESIGN THIS ILL DESIGNED PART.

APPROXIMATELY 10/25/07 BEGAN TO SMELL STRONG FUEL FUMES EMANATING FROM VOLVO 2001 S-60 ALONG WITH A DIFFICULTY IN STARTING THE VEHICLE. ON-LINE INVESTIGATION AND DISCUSSION WITH VOLVO SPECIALIST REPAIR SHOP INDICATES ISSUE RELATED TO FAULTY FUEL PUMP / FILTER WHICH THE CORPORATION IS CURRENTLY RECALLING ONLY NEVADA AND ARIZONA......VOLVO SPECIALIST INDICATED THAT THEY ARE SEEING NUMEROUS VEHICLES (IN JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA) WITH THE SAME ISSUE. OBVIOUSLY A SAFETY CONCERN WHEN STRONG FUEL FUMES ARE NOTICEABLE AROUND THE VEHICLE....

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE: DELIVERY: FUEL PUMP

11/21/2007 - NORTH EAST BEACH, FL
TL CONTACT OWNS A 2001 VOLVO S60. THE CONTACT SMELLED A STRONG GASOLINE SMELL AND NOTICED A PUDDLE BY THE FUEL TANK. HE TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE LOCAL MECHANIC AND HE STATED THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE YEAR, MAKE, AND MODEL OF HIS VEHICLE. HE TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER AND THEY STATED THAT THEY WOULD NOT REPAIR IT FOR FREE BECAUSE IT WAS NOT INCLUDED IN NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER 07V152000 (FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY:FUEL PUMP). THE CONTACT FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE MANUFACTURER. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 103,000 AND CURRENT MILEAGE WAS 108,000.

FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER: DELIVERY: FUEL PUMP

11/16/2007 - OWENS CROSS ROADS, AL
MY 2001 VOLVO S60, AT 68K MILES, HAD CRACKS IN THE FUEL PUMP, CAUSING A STRONG GAS SMELL DUE TO THE LEAKS. THIS APPEARS TO BE A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM WITH THE S60 IN PARTICULAR, SINCE NUMEROUS POSTINGS HAVE BEEN SEEN REGARDING THIS SAME PROBLEM. WHEN I CALLED THE VOLVO DEALERSHIP, THEY KNEW IMMEDIATELY WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. THIS IS A $1000 REPAIR THAT IS NEARLY CERTAIN FROM WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TELL. APPARENTLY VOLVO HAS ISSUED A RECALL ON THIS PROBLEM, BUT ONLY IN ARIZONA AND NEVADA. THE IDEA THAT THE CAR DEVELOPS THIS PROBLEM UPON ENTERING THESE STATES SEEMS AMUSING. THIS APPEARS TO BE AN S60 ISSUE, REGARDLESS OF LOCATION. PERHAPS THE RECALL NEEDS TO BE EXPANDED TO COVER ALL AFFECTED MODELS/CARS? JOEL MILLER

11/13/2007 - LIGHTHOUSE PT, FL
MY 2001 VOLVO S60 STARTED SMELLING LIKE GAS INSIDE THE CAR. I TOOK IT TO THE VOLVO SPECIALIST WHO SERVICES MY CAR AND HE SAID THAT IT WAS CAUSED BY A CRACKED FUEL PUMP CASING. HE SAID THAT IN THE LAST MONTH HE HAS SEEN 5 OR 6 2001 VOLVOS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. I SEARCHED THE INTERNET AND FOUND THAT THE PROBLEM IS BECOMING COMMONLY REPORTED AND THAT VOLVO ACKNOWLEDGES THE PROBLEM IN NEVADA AND ARIZONA. I THINK THEY NEED TO INCLUDE SOUTH FLORIDA. I CONTACTED THE DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR AND THE SERVICE REP SAID THEY HAVE SEEN QUITE A FEW CARDS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM AND THAT WHILE VOLVO WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING TO HELP ME, THEY - THE DEALERSHIP - WOULD REPLACE THE PART FOR ONLY LABOR ($130 X 5 HOURS) AND NOT CHARGE THE $500+ PART.
