Volvo ProblemsTransmission Shifting Issues Due to Internal Failure and Software Issues
The automatic transmission may develop shifting problems and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to internal component failure and/or software issues. It is always best to be sure the transmission control module has the latest software installed when any major transmission repair is performed.
It is not uncommon for the exterior light bulbs to burn out prematurely. No repair option has been reported other than replacing the failed bulb.
Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps.

Volvo RecallsEngine Starter Fails During Automatic Engine Stop Restart Function
The auto stop / start feature of the engine may fail, as the starter motor fuse may blow and the engine may not restart. Dealers will replace the starter motor fuse with a higher amperage fuse free of charge to resolve the concern.
The third row side curtain air bags may not inflate fully when deployed in an accident. This could cause increased risk of occupant injury. Dealers will modify the D-pillar interior panels to allow full inflation of the third row air bags free of charge to resolve the concern.
The wiring harness for the side impact protection system (SIPS) may have been improperly routed, resulting in damage to the wiring. This could prevent the seat mounted side impact air bags from deploying in an accident. Dealers will inspect the routing of the SIPS wiring and will correct it, installing a protective sleeve as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
