09 S80- T6. This is a new one, going about 65 on the highway and suddenly this weird sound comes from what sounded like the driver side under the dash board. It did it 3 times during a 120 mile trip. Almost sounded like a leveling motor from a GM car? Talked to my local Volvo dealer where I purchased the car and they thought it could be a "blender door" sticking in the climate control system or the brake booster system. This thing is LOUD when it does it- but until we can get the thing to do it on call (which is impossible) it will be tough to diagnose. Any ideas or has anyone experienced anything similar. I doubt it was the blender door- the first thing I did was manually control the climate options so all doors opened and closed- no noise?

Hm. Thats a weird one.<p>If you really are mad at your service department, you could do what I did once:<p>Burn this song <A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwsuE2LVFcQ" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwsuE2LVFcQ</A> on a CD, pop that in the car and load it up. Then drive up to the dealership with all windows down, sunroof open, with the radio on NPR playing classical music. Pull up, but keep the windows open, turn the bass setting all the way up, click CD, quickly turn the volume all the way up, and then turn off the car before it starts playing. Then put some scotch tape on the volume/power knob. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Go to the advisor, he'll think "what a fruitcake", give you the usual run around, then give him your keys.

And in sheer panic, he doesn't know what to do and tries to turn the volume down, but the scotch tapes got ya covered. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><br>And when you pick up your car next time, he says "Sir, next time, please take all CD's out of your vehicle" - and you tell him to fix your car right the first time, and it won't happen again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Stange sounds from a T6 (vivek9856)

The dealer is great. Its the S80 that seems a bit "sketchy" compared to my 06-S60. Hindsight is always perfect but I was never in the shop with any problems, noises or any silly problems in the 3 years I had the 60. Looking back I actually like the 60 better, and I will probably be happy to move on to another car in a couple years. We'll see?
