2004 Volvo V70 Recalls

Volvo Recalls Garmin 760 Portable GPS-Equipped Vehicles Due to Overheating Battery

Volvo is recalling all models equipped with Garmin 760 Portable Global Positioning System units because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Volvo advises owners to stop using the Garmin device immediately and consult the Garmin website to determine if they have a defective unit. The unit's battery will be replaced and a spacer inserted to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

Vehicles in Warm Weather Climates May Develop a Fuel Leak

When exposed to certain environmental conditions (hot climate and temperature cycling) over time and in combination with varying fuel quality, the fuel pump can develop cracks in the fuel pump flange. If cracks develop, a fuel smell and/or leak may be noted. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump as necessary to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R220.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Fuel Pressure Sensor

The fuel pressure sensor may at times transmit an incorrect signal to the engine control module. If the signal is outside of the pre-programmed allowable limits, the Check Engine Light can illuminate and a fault code will be stored. An engine misfire and/or engine stalling may occur. In certain traffic situations, this could cause an unsafe situation and possibly a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R181.

I also have a Mercedes C200 station wagon, which is a fe...
We bought a 2007 V70 2.5T used after doing quite a bit of research. While the car looks nice and much of the interior seems modern and firm, a number of used cars had all sorts of issues that dealers tried to hide. I would highly recommend forcing a dealer to repair all known issues with a pre-owned certified check before putting any money down. Then upgrade what you can in the purchase and ...
