2009 Volvo V70 Problems

The upper engine mount may wear prematurely. Symptoms may include a harsh feeling when the transmission is shifting and roughness when the engine is idling. Worn engine mounts should be replaced as necessary.

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light and/or other dash warning lights may illuminate due to a failed ABS Control Module. Replacement of the failed module is generally required to correct this concern.

The front control arm bushings wear out, resulting in alignment issues and squeaking and/or knocking noises from the front end. Worn bushings will require replacement.

2009 Volvo V70 Recalls

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.

The engine cooling fan may stop working without warning due to a software error. Depending on the conditions, the occupants may experience reduced air conditioning performance and/or rapid heating of the engine temperature. The driver may not have sufficient time to react to the warning lights before engine failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fan control module free of charge. The recall began July, 2009. The Volvo recall number is R214.
