Re: 17,614 XC70, V70, and S80 models recalled for faulty cooling fan! ([email protected])
Very interesting. Thank you for notifying us.
Even though I have an '07, its surprising that these second gen cars have so many issues. I know that on my car, there was a recall for a windshield wiper issue already. Plus there are lots of other issues with these cars that don't have official recalls (T6 owner's having screeching, etc.)
But even so, I enjoy my car even with its defects.

Ditto on Zamo's comment. I think my '09 has been the most trouble free Volvo we've owned. But I've got to agree with MAC1LSR, I would have liked to see a temp. gauge as in my S60s on the current beast!

Having had a P2 S80 T6 that I bought new, and a '07 S80 V8, my '02.5 S80 T6 had about $80k worth of warranty/service work from 0 miles to 80k including a new transmission. My '07 S80 V8, before it was totaled, had zero problems from 0-5k miles in 2 months, except for a false alarm with a white piece of rubber that I saw dangling under the car.
I would buy another EUCD platform Volvo in a heartbeat.

Nick, I am sure you've meant 8K not 80K? Twice the worth of a car?
Yes, $80,000 worth of warranty and non-warranty work done between 01/2003 - 02/2007 and 80,000 miles.
I saved all the receipts and repair orders and gave them to the current owner of the car. For starters, two new cats, new transmission, blown turbo (at 30k miles), charge pipe cracking, various bushings and rubber parts, every motor and transmission mount replaced at least twice, electrical issues, etc.
