I have been perusing this site ever since I purchased the above car back in June 2001. I was reassured with all of the positive owner feedback before deciding to buy ours. <p>Although I not see any negative posts here on the quality of said Volvos, I have had a disaster with mine - enough to rightfully so pursue lemon law buyback. We have spent more than 400 miles in one year on the road to the delearship too with only 18,000 miles on it in 15 months!<p>***<p>1. Rear module failed / needs to be reset (4 times)<br>Apparently it has happened again. When this fails, we have no fuel guage (always reads empty), no rear door locks (have to reach around into the back seat to lock and unlock them), no trunk release (have to pop off the manual lock cover and use the key each time), no rear headrest control (we cannot put down the headrests which greatly obstructs the view out the rear), garage door openers failed, sun roof will not close (thus we cannot drive it in the rain or leave it unattended) and who knows what else. Just this morning the service guy said that it was probably caused by using the key fob when it was in the ignition. Well we went out to dinner tonight, clicked the trunk release - and boom, the same failure!<p>2. Front control module failed / needed to be reset<br>The wipers acted on their own and eventually stopped in the middle of the windshield. After canceling her business meeting and instead heading directly to the dealer where they did nothing but move them down and say it probably needed a new switch, they sent my wife on her way with no working wipers! Volvo safety??? <p>3. Tires squeal upon cornering at any level of moderate yaw rate turn<br>The tire pressure has been checked repeatedly and even increased higher at times to no avail. This is not in keeping with its sports sedan type nor did it do this when new. <p>4. Halfshaft CV joints click when engaging the transmission into drive / reverse<br>This started within the last month - Pulling into drive from neutral results in two sharp click sounds emanating most likely from the CV joints (typical of worn CV joints). I also notice a slight amount of tire thump sound/vibration when driving on a smooth road.<p>5. The black rear bumper's insert "paint repair" has all peeled off and now it looks dappled with gray<p>6. Scrubbing noise/vibration only when turning the wheel left at or near the steering lock<br>Typically seen while parking and U-turns and sounds like the tire is hitting the fender well (it's not). - No problem found<p><br>7. Clunk/bobble/torque hit when releasing brakes from a stop (4 times)<br>A b-o-i-n-g feeling when releasing the brakes at a stop<p>8. Vehicle shudders when accelerating in reverse (3 times)<br>This is not a violent event, but we can feel the shudder / pulsation when moving in reverse. This feels similar to torque converter shudder<p>9. Loss of power steering. <br>This occurred while visiting family 500 miles from Michigan for the holidays. A severe grinding / pump sound with loss of power steering while turning. I inspected the power steering fluid to find it heavily foamed and below the dipstick. I finally found an approved type power steering fluid at an automotive part store and filled it up. - No cause was found.<p>Any comments or reassurances?
