2010 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.
2010 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.
Volvo is recalling 2010–2011 280 and XC70; 2011 XC60; and 2010 V70 models due to an intermittent fault in driver's air bag clockspring wiring connector for the supplemental restraint system. In the event of a crash, the driver's air bag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will install a metal shim in the driver's air bag clockspring wiring connector, free of charge.
