One of the friends in Freya’s Army informed me that RusmackedVolvo made it to the Freshly Pressed Page this afternoon. Thank you WordPress! Much appreciated.

    Hate to be a wet blanket but Volvo’s have never been much of a car and the chances of them producing one in the near future are slim to none but that doesn’t resolve your problem but I wish you the very best in your fight with them. Keep up the fight and don’t back down, just about every car has it’s down sides but when you get rid of the volvo after it is fixed get a Honda, you’ll have alot better car and a hell of alot less trouble and more time to sit in traffic and not over heat or you tranny not screwing up! Best wishes. Love the video.

    I can not believe there is someone else having the same problems with their XC70 Volvo.
    I bought a used Volvo Stationwagon (2001) in 2006. It only had about 50,000 miles and everything was fine. No accidents and from a nice couple. She was driving the baby while he was in Iraq and when he came home he wanted a truck.
    Not 6 months later I had the beginning of the most awful electrical problems and now in 2009 it is almost everything except for the engine.
    I got a new transmission, broken mount etc $5000.00 later in 2008.
    Even the Volvo mechanic said this car was the worst ever made.
    I am just sick that after 3 years I have invested almost 7 grand to fix this piece of crap but any one who knows this car wont buy it.
    Did you hear that Mr. Volvo!

    We have two 2008 Volvo XC90s.

    “Anti Skid” light turns on at random.

    My Volvo dealership said on both cars that everything was ok and that they would replace some widget. They did replace a widget but the light still came on periodically. On the third service call they replaced another widget and now the Skid Control light in one car has not come on again.

    Anti Skid = Volvo Reputation

    Broken Anti Skid = Volvo Reputation on the line

    I can sooooo believe that Volvo North America is not trying to stand behind their product. I have a Volvo 850 turbo that I have had so many problems with it is unbelievable. When I wrote to Volvo North America some snobby person called me to discuss my letter and basically said that I didn’t keep up with the maintenance, or that I didn’t use a reputable Volvo dealer for the repairs, and just a bunch of junk. They definitely do not stand by their product, and the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of Volvo junk cars out there.

    I have told my fair share of people that the purchase of a Volvo is not the best choice, and will continue to tell anyone that will listen. I refuse to say that I believe in a product that I don’t and I can prove all of the work that I have had to have done to the car and then some.

    I have changed the suspension parts too many times to list. All of the motor mounts have been replaced several times and I am in need of another one to be replaced now. Sway bar end links are a household name in my house now along with the tires. I have had lots and lots of SETS of tires, I am now to the point where I am replacing them one at a time, I am hoping that the car fairy comes down and takes this piece of crap Volvo away somehow.

    I feel her pain to my core because I was so frustrated that I wanted to scream after talking to the Volvo representative. Then about three weeks later I received a survey in the mail asking me to rate my Volvo and Volvo service, but conveniently enough there were not choices for dislike and strongly dislike the worst rating I could give was neutral. So I didn’t bother to fill it out because really if I had filled it out it would and could not give an accurate evaluation of my service and in this, and all cases with Volvo my lack of service.

    The car looks decent on the outside and about a week ago someone gave me a comment on its looks and I said it may look good but it runs like $%^&. It really is junk. That is my absolute opinion. I will not waste my money on another one that is for sure.
