Summary of Complaint

MY CAR WAS NOT IN AN ACCIDENT. I CAME OUT TO GET IN MY CAR AND UPON STARTING MY CAR THE AIRBAG WARNING URGENT LIGHT CAME ON. I IMMEDIATELY TOOK MY CAR TO THE VOLVO DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR. VOLVO OF WINTER PARK. I LEFT MY CAR. THEY KEPT MY CAR A FEW DAYS AND I PICKED MY CAR UP ON A THURSDAY. I DROVE MY CAR TO MY SISTERS PROPERTY ON SATURDAY. THE CAR DID NOT MOVE ON SUNDAY AND UPON GETTING INTO THE CAR ON MONDAY MY AIRBAG URGENT LIGHT ONCE AGAIN CAME ON. THIS HAS HAPPENED 3 WEEKS IN A ROW. EACH TIME I WOULD RETURN THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP AND PICK IT UP ON THURSDAY AND MONDAY THE LIGHT WOULD BE BACK ON. TODAY MY CAR HAD BEEN AT THE DEALERSHIP OVERNIGHT FOR A LINER REPAIR. I RETURNED THIS AFTERNOON TO PICK UP MY CAR. I SIT DOWN IN IT TURN THE IGNITION AND THE AIRBAG URGENT LIGHT IS ON FOR THE FOUTH TIME. I HAVE ONCE AGAIN LEFT MY CAR AT THE DEALERSHIP. IN 2005 I HAD BOTH MY AIRBAGS IN MY PONTIAC SUNFIRE DEPLOY WHILE MY CAR WAS IDLING IN A TURN LANE WAITING TO MAKE A TURN INTO A SHOPPING CENTER. IT PUNCTURED A HOLE IN MY HEART AND CHRUSHED A SHUNT THAT WAS IN MY HEAD FROM A PREVIOUS ACCIDENT. IT BURNT MY CHEST, GAVE ME 2 BLACK EYES AND A MELON ON MY FOREHEAD AND FRACTURED MY NOSE. I DO NOT WISH TO GO THRU THIS AGAIN. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A 2006 VOLVO C70 AND THE TIERS STARTED TO LOOSE AIR. WHEN I HAD THE VEHICLE INSPECTED I FOUND OUT THAT THREE OF THE FOUR 18' RIMS HAD CRACKS ON THE INSIDE OF THE RIM EDGE...WITH A LITTLE RESEARCH I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE 2006 VOLVO C70. IT IS AN OUTRAGE THAT VOLVO DOES NOT YET HAVE TO FIX THIS SAFETY ISSUE. WHO KNOWS HOW MANY ACCIDENTS HAVE OR WILL HAPPEN DUE TO A TIRE GOING FLAT ON THIS MODEL AND RIM SIZE. I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES RIMS CAN GET DAMAGED HOWEVER," ALL ARE CRACKING IN THE SAME AREA". I WILL HAVE TO REPLACE ALL THREE RIMS TO MAKE THE VEHICLE SAFE TO DRIVE. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. R. SWANEY. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT MY 2006 VOLVO C70 IN AUGUST OF 2006 AT GALPIN MOTORS. I TOOK MY C70 INTO THE DEALERSHIP IN MAY OF 2007 BECAUSE ONE OF MY TIRES WAS GOING FLAT. IT TURNS OUT TWO OF MY 18" MIRZAM RIMS HAD GONE OUT OF ROUND AND ONE OF THEM WAS CRACKED ON THE INTERIOR. NO OTHER DAMAGE WAS FOUND TO HAVE OCCURRED TO THE CAR. ONE TIRE HAD A SLIGHT SEPARATION DUE TO THE DEFECT OF THE RIM. THE CAR ONLY HAD 7900 MILES ON IT. THE RIMS AND TIRES ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION BECAUSE THE DEALERSHIP (GALPIN MOTORS) LOST THEM. THE OTHER TWO ORIGINAL 18" MIRZAM RIMS WENT OUT OF ROUND IN FEBRUARY OF 2008 WHILE ON VACATION. THE CAR ONLY HAD 17000 MILES ON IT. I AGAIN TOOK IT TO A VOLVO DEALERSHIP BECAUSE OF A TIRE GOING FLAT AND ONCE AGAIN IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE SECOND TWO ORIGINAL 18" MIRZAM RIMS HAD GONE OUT OF ROUND AND ONE OF THE 18" MIRZAM RIMS WAS CRACKED ON THE INTERIOR. THESE TWO RIMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION. GALPIN VOLVO AND VOLVO NORTH AMERICA HAVE DONE NOTHING TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. I WAS TOLD THIS ISSUE CAN OCCUR DUE TO NORMALLY DRIVING CONDITIONS AND THIS IS THE REASON WHY THE RIMS GOING OUT OF ROUND ARE NOT UNDER ANY TYPE OF WARRANTY. IF I HAD KNOWN THIS WAS GOING TO BE AN ISSUE I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT MY C70 WITH DIFFERENT RIMS. TO DATE I AM OUT OF POCKET $2,485.52 AND I WINCE AT ANY BUMP, DIP OR CRACK IN THE ROAD. SO MUCH FOR VOLVO SAFETY. I HAVE SINCE FOUND MORE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD THE SAME OUT OF ROUND RIM PROBLEM. *TR
