The gear shifting problem can lead to stalling and an accident, federal safety investigators say.
In a separate recall, the 2012 S80 was also recalled recently for faulty wiring problems too.
This preliminary, early announcement will be followed shortly by the actual recall announcement by federal safety investigators, which will be posted here in the coming days.
Meanwhile, drive carefully out there.
