2. Insufficient battery power to start the car
3. Spurious messages on the Information centre.

Applies not just to the V50 but a couple of other models as well but I don't have the letter with me. Sofware upgrade takes up to 1 hour I am told.
Can someone tell me if Microsoft helped Volvo develope the software that goes in our cars? This is becoming more and more like Windows software upgrade.

With regards to loose handbrakes, I had a couple of early V50's (was going to get a run out V40 but couldn't get it so had a V50) and most of them went in to have the handbrake sorted; all of them would pull off with the handbrake on (oops) and as I was towing with some of them it wasn't particularily reassuring.

One of the reasons that this has taken a while for it to appear as a problem, and for it to be dealt with, is that most people in the UK do not leave the car in gear; in Europe that is a common practice so as a problem it occurs less often.

I don't mean to sound heartless, but I'm almost relieved others have had handbrake problems. My last v50 (05 year) had handbrake troubles. The garage (Parkside Orpington) were useless. I took it in three times and they persistently told me there was nothing wrong - that it was me. The handbrake was pulling up 12 notches on a slope and still not reliable! It was only fixed when I threatened to take it somewhere else.

I read in a Dutch newsgroup that Volvo is going to recall 82000 Volvo S40's and V50's built between 2004 and 2006 for problems with the electronics on the fuel pump.

Haven't seen it anywhere else though but thought I better post it just in case.

(they treat their customers like sh*t anyway, so theres no surprise there) This is not being nasty but is a statement of FACT, , as can be judged from previous articles concerning shoddy treatment of myself ,so please dont ban this article,lol.
M.R.G Chippenham fitted all new parts and gave me handbook

interesting! I had the fuel pump replaced under warranty on my 2004 S40 after that got an intermittent 'glitch'. The garage said there had been known faults with them, but as far as I know they didn't mention a recall. (mind you, as the article says, it is mainly 5 cylinder models, and mine is a 4cyl 1.8 petrol).

Hi, I have had a recall for my V50, its not listed here so I thought i would share the knowlege

Model: Volvo V50 2.0D R Design Sport SE

Recall: R88075/263778 - MATS

Spoke to a tech who informed its a replacement drivers floormat, the mat has been modified to stop the possibility of fouling the accelerator pedal.

Hi kirium,

I have a 08 S40 with the R-Design pack. The floor mat started blocking the return of both the clutch and acc some time ago so I threw it out. No recall for S40 R Design owners but its a very real problem.
