Volvo S80 Front Upper Strut Mounts May Fail and Cause Noise Over Bumps

(71 reports)

Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps.

When I go over bumps there is a noise (squeak) that comes from the front end, mostly the drivers side. I have taken it to the dealer numerous times, and they grease the bearings or springs (I think that's what they called them)and that solves the problem for a short time. The issue has yet to be fixed and I'm at 105k. -
