Volvo is recalling model year 2010-2011 C30, and model year 2010 S40 and V50 vehicles equipped with 6-speed manual transmissions. The gearshift lever stud-assembly may not have been tightened to the correct specification during assembly.
If the gearshift lever cable or stud assembly becomes loose, it may not be possible to engage, disengage or shift gears, according to a filing by Volvo to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
