So I bought my 1999 C-70 with 30,000 km on it a few years back. It was basically brand new. Since then I have babied it, keeping it parked in the garage with a cover on it, and only taking it out in ideal conditions. This is not a car that has been driven hard.<p>Today I took the car in for its 72,000 km (45,000 mile) service. The laundry list of "urgent repairs" is both disappointing and scary. I am completely flummoxed. How can a garage-kept car with less than 100,000 km need so much work. My Chevy "beater car" has never needed this much to be done to it.<p>Here is the list the dealership gave me - let me know if you spot any red herrings, to me none of this makes sense...<p>Right Front Lower Engine Mount Needs replacing<br>Right Front Stabilizer Link Needs Replacing<br>Turbo gasket leaking oil<br>Engine Coolant needs replacement<br>Transmission Fluid needs to be replaced<br>Front Brake Pads and Rotors need replacing<br>Rear Brake Pads and Rotors Urgently need replacing<br>Battery Cable Corroded and burnt<br>Emergency Brake pads appear worn<p>Total repair cost $2200 (CAD)<p>On top of this, the ABS sensor has let go, and will be just over $1500 to replace.<p>How can a car with only 72,000 km need $3700 in repairs? This seems outrageous to me. <p>Many of the advised repairs I can do myself, however in researching this I have found that there are special volvo products to be used for the transmission fluid, special volvo tools, and parts are as scarce as hen's teeth.<p>I told th edealer to go ahead with the turbo repair since I don't want a mess of oil on the garage floor, but for the rest of it I will go to other local mechanics. No way will I continue to pay Volvo for this car.
