GOTHENBURG, Sweden (Bloomberg) — Ford Motor Co.'s Volvo unit said it's recalling 116,000 S80 sedans, one of its best-selling models.

A Volvo spokesman confirmed the recall, though he said he didn't know the cause. An Agence France Presse report said a ball-and-socket joint in the front suspension could be faulty.

Ford representatives said they had no information. The car is the most expensive of Volvo's three sedan models and the brand's best seller in the United States, where 18,969 S80s were sold this year through July.
