When it got so pronounced, I took it to my dealer's mechanic; he heard it, but couldn't pinpoint the exact source. He did rule out wheel bearing failure, and due to its' extreme left location, ruled out any transmission or angle drive issues (which had themselves been recently serviced). Fin...

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.

The Windshield Wipers May Fail in Extreme Winter Weather Conditions

If the windshield wipers are activated in extreme winter weather conditions and without lifting the wiper arms and cleaning the windshield prior to moving, the wiper arm can slip on its driveshaft, resulting in an inability to move the wipers from the park position. Inoperative wipers during inclement weather conditions could cause a crash due to reduced visibility. Dealers will replace the wiper arms and retaining nuts to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R156.

Absolute garbage. On all fronts. And Volvo USA? Don't waist your time. If you're reading this then it's probably too late. You've bought one (GOD HELP YOU) it's falling apart like a Yugo, or, you've now found out that the bolt that doesn't come off from the idler pulley on the belt and it costs $1,850 to replace a $60 item. Yes, to add to the horror, new timing chain cover because the routine j...
Yes, this vehicle is expensive to maintain. Yes there are a few computer glitches now and then, but every car is never perfect all the time. Look at Mercedes Benz for example. What a nightmare they are compared to the much more reliable Volvo. I know I have owned both. Volvo is expensive, but it all comes down to, "What is your life worth?" All in all, style, safety and pure pleasure of driving...
