2000 Volvo V70 XC Q&A

2000 Volvo V70 XC Question: vibration in steering with drone noise in powertrain

Car has 170000. I have had it for 7 years off a lease. Serviced religiously at the dealer.Have all the records Developed a drone like noise and vibration in steering. Dealer had it for 25 days...replaced rotors/3times, rebuilt front and rear ends, replaced tire, replaced pads, replaced coil in distributer, replaced fuel pump..and they didn't even take me to dinner. I called Volvo corp. in North Jersey. Advised me to take it to another dealer. I think it may be the power train. What would that costto repair/replace?? I didn't want to get in to a car payment right now but Ialso need to know the vehicle is safe. I'm on the road for my job. -
Answer 1
"Power Train" is a general term that encompasses the transmission and drive axles so an estimate is hard to give. Can you explain when this noise/vibration occurs? What conditions? Vehicle speed, engine speed, what gear your in etc. -
Answer 2
did you get your car fixed? Have you checked your brake rotors? and if you turn the wheel slightly does the noise stop? -
