STOCKHOLM, July 26, 2007; Reuters reported that Sweden's Volvo Car Corp., owned by Ford Motor Co., is recalling more than 40,000 XC90 cars in the United States due to a potential problem with the battery.

It said it was recalling 42,211 2005-model Volvo XC90s sold in the United States to make sure they had not been serviced in a way which created the risk of a short-circuit of the car battery, Volvo Car spokeswoman Maria Bohlin said.
