Today I went for alignment and the guy said that he seems some oil around the front shocks.<p>I went to the dealer and they said that there is an oil leak after a few weeks will need two new shocks for the front.<p>I ordered them and will change next week.<p>Do you think is this normal at this km?

This could be normal if you TRACK the car. If not that is NO GOOD!

Volvo made those settings to be used, and that is what we do....use them. So you have a 50,000 mile warranty that should cover your shocks (unless you have aftermarket suspension components that they could blame those bad shocks on). I hope you don't (for your wallets sake). Keep us posted as to what happens. Rick

How good are the roads in IStanbul? The different terrain could be the cause.

Re: (lowbumpeR)

Roads are awful! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>That could be reason why they give limited time warranty for suspension components.<p>The dealer give 1 year-(unlimited mile) warranty for the shocks.<p>Each shock is 800 dollars+installing.<p>
