problem details
yes, my 98'/av70 GTL, purchased at 110,000 miles began having AC 34a feeon leaking out. leaking somewhere. Would like to get it repaired by good low cost ac repair shop, but every shop in Jacksonville believes in the 'day' last past were any charge was acceptable, Hey , wake up volvo mechanics , ; if you want volvo customers do somthing to help. I hav been to or called several, at least 7 shops and they all want $50 to $150 just to look and estimate the cost to customer. All that drives me back into my shade tree mode, forget $high labor now days. you will begin to propsper again when we recover the economy. Every Volvo owner the same problem with cash flow. Give us a break, stop carging for estimates, and we will show up in your shop for years to come. Otherwise , hey , toyota and Chevrolte are still the favorite. Get it? I love Volvo as do so love SAAB. Think you get the point. Chevrolet and other if we choose imports, are the best logical investment for transportation. Volvo is a treat. Until we become mis treated. ar
