I am a resident of texas. I just bought a 2002 Volvo S60 about three months ago, and I've noticed a strong fuel smell in and around car. There is a leak in the fuel pump and when car is parked, fuel forms a puddle under car. It is extremely dangerous to drive a car in this condition, both for myself but also for the general public. I searched online about this issue and found the following recall information from the national highway traffic safety administration website: make: Volvo model: S60 model year: 2002 manufacturer: Volvo cars of n. A. Llc.

Without warning or other problems, the car's engine suddenly lost power at about 55 mph on the highway, message of "reduced engine performance" came on. Although the car remained turned on, pressing on the gas pedal had little to no effect on either the movement of the car or the rpm's. Once the car was stopped but was still turned on, it maintained a strong "pulsing" action and sound from the engine. When put into "drive" and "reverse" gears, the car moved in "limp mode" at approximately 2 mph regardless of how much pressure was placed on the gas pedal. The car was towed to the dealership. After coasting it off the tow truck, the car started normally and responded normally when put into reverse and forward gears, but the "reduced engine performance" message remained. Dealer's service computer indicated at least 10 error codes, most pertaining to fuel pump problems. The service computer also indicated that the initial and primary problem was with the electronic fuel pump module. The service department's inspection of this electronic part, and the staff's experience with similar problems on other Volvo's manufactured prior to 2006, indicated that the electronic fuel pump module had suffered corrosion due to its placement on the outside of the vehicle. This problem was corrected when a new electronic fuel pump module was installed inside the vehicle. This was a very costly repair. I was informed by a representative of no. America's Volvo customer care department that this defect contributed to recalls of two different Volvo models of the same year, but not the S60. The reason for omitting the S60 from the recall was not explained, but clearly it should have been included since the location of the fuel module and the resulting problems are the same. In addition to the high cost of the repair, the unusual highway breakdown was very dangerous.

2001 Volvo S60 - gas leak from above the fuel tank. Strong gas odor, discovered fuel dripping down side of tank under vehicle on passenger's side. Drove for at least 2 weeks or more before I figured out it was my car that creating that gas smell at lights (only noticed when window was down). Until vehicle began leaking a lot of gas and odor was over powering. Was told Volvo's "extended warranty" would not cover the defective fuel pump because the "extended warranty" was only for 10 years or 150,000 miles. Had vehicle repaired at my expense. One day after repair an even worse gas leak appeared under vehicle on driver's side above rear gas tank. Not resolved as of date of complaint. Puddle of gas under vehicle. Gas odor strong really afraid to drive it back to the mechanic. Additional complaint: intermittent lurching or surging of same Volvo S60 at low speeds shortly after starting. It lunges forward and then pulls back with no depressing of accelerator. It is a manual transmission so the lurching is very alarming considering no additional depression of the accelerator is happening when it randomly lunges forward. Usually stops lunging after 10 minutes of driving.

2004 Volvo S60 r awd with less than 65,000 miles started leaking fuel that is running down the passenger side of the gas tank and there is a very strong pungent gas odor emitted from the passenger side of the rear of the vehicle. Took the car to Volvo of georgetown and local Volvo mechanic who both told me that the vehicle needed a new fuel pump but I was not covered under the S60 fuel pump recall a few years prior. Big safety hazard and concern!.
