WASHINGTON — Volvo is recalling 30,929 2011-'12 Volvo S60s in the U.S. because the driver may not be warned of low oil pressure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"In the affected vehicles, the vehicle may not alert the driver of a low oil pressure situation," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Without being warned of a low oil pressure situation, the driver may continue to drive the vehicle until it stalls, which increases the risk of a crash."

If the engine oil pressure is too low, there will be no warning displayed in the Driver Information Module.

The affected vehicles were built from June 22, 2010 through May 14, 2012. They are equipped with five-cylinder engines.

Volvo dealers will update the vehicle's software so that the driver is alerted should there be a low oil pressure situation. The recall is expected to begin on December 31. Owners can contact Volvo at 1-800-458-1552.

Edmunds says: If you own a 2011-'12 Volvo S60, it's time to call your dealer to make arrangements for the software update.
