Swedishiron............

The 780 requires a tech who has some knowledge about the older Volvo's and therefore someone who has been with Volvo for a while. Finding "that tech" is your problem..IMO!

Re: (JigokuZ)

This is clearly a dealership not the manufacturer problem.


http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif As at Stillman...we have 6-7 techs with 15+ years experience who do know the 780! The key is to find a tech who knows the car!

Re: (ig_mb)

ig......

Think about it "this way".... I have access as to how a nuclear reactor works....but does that mean 1-that I have the ABILITY to fix one???..not necessarily AND 2- just because the information is there, does it mean I want to take the work in...knowing that I have little to no experience in creecting the problem? Let me just say this.....
Volvo's corp. responsibility is to supply the franchise dealers with the parts availability..the technical training..and inventory and marketing of the current model vehicles.....If a dealer chooses NOT to work on a particular vehicle "after " the manufacturers warranty period...that is "that" dealers choice.

Re: (w1ntson)

w1inston..................

You sure seem to read a lot into a message that was certainly never said!
Your opinions show a rather pathetic perception of what is being communicated.
So...let me break it down in very simple terms....There are a # of Volvo stores that have a "seasoned" crew of techs who will galdly work on ANY Volvo...all models /all years!
And there are other Volvo stores that are in newer markets or for whatever reason have "less experienced" techs and therefore prefer NOT to work on something they are not that familiar with.....and I don't blame them!
MY POINT was that finding a good tech is the key to keeping ANY older car running! I see nothing in that says you are dumb if you drive an older Volvo (especially since mine is a 91 240 w/239k miles
)...nor do I say anything to indicate that I was "talking down" to anyone! I am not "passing the buck" as you put it...and I have called no one a "poor Bas^*%$!"............I believe those were your words.......so let's leave it at this....you speak for yourself and I'll speak for myself!
This is Bob Speaking for Bob
...If you have an old 780 and need some help with factory trained service....I have 5-6 experienced tech here who can help you......BUT if you find yourself at a Volvo dealer who seems unwilling to help you....IMO, you are at a store that does not have an experienced 780 tech. That is why you are being "turned away".
I will let W1inston explain his side of the story if he chooses http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif

Re: (Majisto)

I wish it was possible to order a car from the factory and have it delivered to your house.

Majisto...There IS a way to do exactly that! It's called Overseas Delivery! I would be happy to get you all the info on the program..if you would like. And no...this is not a "sales pitch"....it is a "for real" program with some great benifits and it DOES take the dealership out of the equation!
