Global automaker Volvo Car Corporation decided to recall 3,136 S80 vehicles in China over windshield wiper flaws, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) here Friday.
In a report to the top quality supervisor, Volvo said it identified a deviation in the Central Electronic Module (CEM) software in its model S800 cars that may cause the windshield wipers to malfunction.
If this happens, the windshield wipers may not work when needed, or they may work when not activated.
The affected vehicles were all imported and produced between Jan. 24, 2006 and June 4, 2007. Volvo and its dealers will contact the owners and inspect the CEM and upgrade the software free of charge.
