    CLunking noise in front suspension when hitting bumps. Why do Volvos wear out so quickly? No problems with any Toyota I've had with twice as many miles!

    I live in a mountain community, I noticed on the drive down the mountain that every time I hit the slightest little bump in the road the car would jump all over the road. Very scary felt as though the car had a mind of it's own! I drove on slow surface streets straight to the Volvo dealer, by the time I reached them the right front arm bolt was almost completely off! I could of gone off a cliff and nobody would have known why!! Scary day for me!
