They told me I had to take it to a Volvo dealer. (none close by) They only put one of the Inspection stickers on my car until I got the speedometer replaced. I am hoping someone close by does this work. They told me that they fixed the brake squeaking that I wanted fixed, but they still shriek. I need the brakes repaired (if they really need repair that is) in June which is my month for Pa. Inspection. I think they could be lying to me. I have driven this car all over Pa. and ...just exterior cosmetic problems. It has never failed inspection. They told me I had to go up to Doylestown Volvo to get a speedometer for this old car. The odometer is fine. Wish I could look under the hood and watch them prove that I need a new speedometer. They are holding my other inspection sticker hostage until I get a new speedometer.
The dashboard cluster and heated seats as well as the gear shift do not work unless I pull the latch under the steering wheel and jerk the steering wheel around, then the lights come back on and the blinkers work and everything works until I turn the car back off and on and then the problem comes right back.
