Bad noises so many issues killing my $ situation. Spent 300$ at the dealership so far for the problems with stalling to just keep happening. 1700$ in stuts, tie rods, axle, window buttons, ect.. I like this car but its to much of a pain. It drives great in cold weather or rain when its running good. Used autobaun volvo dealership ft worth tx... Never vacumed or cleaned it but they sure can take loads of ur money...
wow. Had front struts replaced, still squeaks, moans and groans over speed bumps. So... Vivian the Volvo is now receiving the defibulator. Inner and outer tie rods ends, control arms, back shocks, new tires and an alignment... Honestly, if she still screams going over the speed bumps, so be it. This is all she is getting. I will post other maintenance she is getting in the appropriate area.... Paid 2k for her, and have about that much added in parts and labor.
I thought it was the transmission because the car would shudder when slowing or braking; mechanic said an engine mount was bad and replaced it. This made a noticeable difference, but I also think I have the hard shifting problem mentioned here in another post.
