Hi all. Here is a great source of recall info (V40 has six): http://www.theaa.com/allaboutcars/re...olvo&makeId=E9
You need to know your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) to see which applies. Hope this helps.

I just tried following the link above but it has changed, you can now find the recall info at
http://www.theaa.com/allaboutcars/re...=E9&lowIndex=0

My V40 last saw a main dealer in 2005 so I'm fairly sure anything would have been done if needed. Does anybody contact Volvo to register second hand cars? I've seen the change of ownership form in the handbook but never filled one in.

Hello I am the second owner of my Volvo and it is a 2003 petrol 2.0 sport V40 which would fall into that category of racalls. I notice fuel smell in the boot area and occasionally there is some wet/ condensation under the rear seat where the fuel tank and pump sits.

I am nowhere near the original dealer so do you know if my local Volvo dealer has an obligation to take this in and would it be free for me as a second hand owner since 2012?

I spoke to a local dealer who said mine was done when services according to a national recall database. Never heard of such database but i don't think the would lie about it so I'm happy. Thanks for posting this.
