2010 Volvo XC70 Problems
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.
The turbocharger return pipe seal may develop an oil leak. The leak can begin very small, but will eventually progress into a large leak. Our technicians recommend having this repaired at first signs of leakage.
2010 Volvo XC70 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.
Volvo is recalling 2010 XC70 models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on tire selection and rims. Affected models were sold with incorrect maximum permissible inflation pressure labels; the owner's manual also contains incorrect information. Dealers will install the new labels free of charge.
