Summary of Complaint

I WAS ON HIGHIWAY 5 IN SAN DIEGO. I SET THE CRUISE CONTROL AT 65MPH. WHEN I APPROACHED A CONGESTED AREA, I MANUALLY PUSHED THE CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH TO THE "OFF" POSITION. WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL IN THE "OFF" POSITION I CONTINUED DRIVING THROUGH THE CONGESTED AREA. AS I WAS LEAVING THE CONGESTED AREA, I DECIDED THIS WOULD BE AN IDEAL TIME TO PUSH THE CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH INTO THE "ON" POSITION, IN PREPARATION FOR DRIVING AT THE HIGHER ALLOWED 65MPH SPEED LIMIT. WHILE TRAVELLING AT 30MPH I PUSHED THE CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH INTO THE "ON" POSITION. AS THE CAR WAS NEW TO ME, I DID NOT RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS NO CLEAR DETENT SIGNIFYING THE "ON" POSITION. UNKNOWNINGLY I 'OVERPUSHED' THE SWITCH FROM THE "OFF" POSITION, PASS THE "ON" POSITION, INTO THE "RESUME" POSITION (THINKING THAT THIS OUGHT TO BE THE "ON" POSITION). I REMOVED MY FINGER FROM THE SWITCH AND IMMEDIATELY THE CAR BEGAN ACCELERATING (I LATER CAME TO REALIZE IT WAS ACCELERATING TO 65MPH, THE SETTING PRIOR TO THE SWITCH BEING TURNED OFF). MY COMPLAINT IS THAT WHEN I PUSHED THE SWITCH INTO THE "OFF" POSITON, ALL PRIOR CRUISE CONTROL SETTINGS SHOULD HAVE BEEN ERADICATED (AS IT DOES IN MY GM TRUCK AND PREVIOUS CARS I DROVE). A DRIVER, AS I DID, NOT KNOWING THAT THE CRUISE CONTROL MEMORY DOES NOT CLEAR WHEN THE SWITCH IS PUSHED INTO THE "OFF" POSITION, COULD EXPERIENCE AN UNCONTROLLED ACCELERATION AND A RESULTING COLLISION WHEN THE SWITCH IS PUSHED BEYOND THE "ON" POSITION. AN INDIVIDUAL, AS I, HAVING DRIVEN A GM VEHICLE WITH FACTORY INSTALLED CRUISE CONTROL CONTROL IS USED TO HAVING THE "OFF" POSITION SEPARATING THE "RESUME" AND "ON" POSITIONS SO THAT THE OPERATOR MUST SELECT A DISTINCT, EXCLUSIVE MOTION FOR "OFF" "ON" AND "RESUME". *AK

Summary of Complaint

THROUGOUT THIS CARS HISTORY (FROM THE FIRST YEAR 20 + YEARS AGO THROUGH TO TODAY) THE ENGINE RANDOMLY CUTS OUT WITHOUT WARNING, THOUGH THIS HAPPENS WHEN USALLY WHILE DECLERATING AND BRAKING TO ROUND A STREET CORNER. ONCE IT CUTS OUT, OF COURSE POWER STEERING AND BRAKES ARE VIRTUALLY INOPERATIVE. HOWEVER, BY SIMPLY PUTTING IN NEUTRAL AND TURNING THE KEY THE CARE ALWAYS IMMEDIATELY RESTARTS.

AS I WAS DRIVING HOME THE CAR STARTED RUNNING VERY ROUGH AND WAS NOT ABLE TO GET IT ABOVE 25 MPH. IT ALSO STARTED TO LUNGE FORWARD SPORADICALLY AND IT SEEMED LIKE IT WAS GOING TO STALL AT ANY MOMENT. I CONTACTED VOLVO DIRECTLY AND THEY CALLED IT "LIMP HOME MODE" AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS, HORRABLE!!. I CONSIDER MYSELF LUCKY THAT MY CHILDREN WERE NOT WITH ME. APPARENTLY VOLVO RECOGNIZES THE PROBLEM BUT ARE NO LONGER FIXING THIS ONGOING PROBLEM. VOLVO ESTIMATED THAT THE FIX WOULD BE ON THE LOW END $900.00 UP TO ABOUT $1400.00. VOLVO IS NOT TAKING ANYMORE RESPONSIBILITY AND NOW IT'S UP TO THE CONSUMER TO ABSORB THE COST. *TR

I HAVE HAD THE FUEL PUMP, RELAY, AND MANIFOLD REPLACED. AND AFTER ALL THAT, SPENDING OVER $1000, IT STALLED THIS LAST TIME.

Summary of Complaint

THE BRAKING SOMETIMES BECOMES DIMINISHED. THE PEDAL IS 'STIFF' AND NORMAL BAKING IS REDUCED. IT OCCURS SO RARELY THAT THERE IS NO WAY FOR ME TO EXPECT THAT IT WILL PRESENT FOR A MECHANIC ON A TEST DRIVE. OCCURRENCES ARE MANY DAYS OR EVEN WEEKS APART. THE SYMPTOM INVOLVES A DISTINCT VARIATION ON THE NORMAL BRAKING EXPERIENCE: A SLIGHT THROBBING OCCURS AND DIMINISHED STOPPING POWER IS AVAILABLE, I HAVE TO PRESS MARKEDLY HARDER TO GET THE CAR TO STOP. SCARY. THIS SYMPTOM IS SO INTERMITTENT AND FLEETING, IT SEEMS IT WOULD BE NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO DEMONSTRATE AND TRACK DOWN. BUT EVERY TIME I EXPERIENCE IT, THE VERY SLIGHT PULSING DURING BRAKING AND ACCOMPANYING ADDITIONAL PEDAL PRESSURE REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE A NORMAL STOP, I WORRY. I'VE EVEN PULLED INTO A PARKING LOT AND TRIED IN AN ABANDON SECTION TO TEST IT AND TO GET IT TO REOCCUR FOR ME, BUT NEVER CAN. SO I WORRY. TO BE CLEAR, THE SITUATION FOR WHICH I'M CONCERNED HERE IS WHEN, ON RARE OCCASIONS, WHILE ROUTINE BRAKING, I EXPERIENCE THE NEED TO APPLY MORE PRESSURE THAN IS OTHERWISE TYPICAL AND USUAL. IT SCARES ME A BIT, BUT AS IT TURNS OUT, IN ALL THE INSTANCES SO FAR, IT'S OCCURRED ON CITY STREETS W/ RELATIVELY LOW SPEEDS INVOLVED AND LIGHT TRAFFIC SITUATIONS; (E.G.: I'M FIRST TO AN INTERSECTION W/ NO ONE IN FRONT OF ME, ETC.) BUT FOR FUTURE SITUATIONS THAT MIGHT REQUIRE A CRITICAL BRAKING, I REMAIN NATURALLY, CONCERNED. THE DANGER IS DISPLACED IN THE IMMEDIATE TERM WHERE THE REMEDY HAS BEEN, SIMPLY, APPLYING INCREASED PEDAL PRESSURE AND FEELING LUCKY NOT TO BE IN A CRITICAL BRAKING SITUATION. THEN I DON'T SEE THE PROBLEM AGAIN FOR SOME TIME. HAVE YOU HAD OTHER MENTIONS OF THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM WITH THE 1999 V70 GLT VOLVOS? *TR

THE INDICATOR LIGHT ON THE GEAR SELECTOR HAS BURNT OUT. THERE'S A 'SIGNAL-ORANGE' COLORED INDICATOR MARK THAT TRACKS THE GEAR SELECTOR AGAINST THE SLATE GREY COLOR SHIFT ASSEMBLY PUT THERE AS A SAFETY FEATURE SO YOU KNOW WHAT GEAR YOU'RE IN AND DON'T ACCIDENTALLY TAKE OFF IN AN UNINTENDED DIRECTION, FORWARD OR REVERSE, OR ROLL INTO SOMEONE WHILE UNINTENTIONALLY FINDING YOURSELF IN NEUTRAL. WELL NOW AT NIGHT UNLESS YOU TURN ON THE INTERIOR LIGHT, YOU CAN JUST GUESS WHAT GEAR YOU'RE IN BECAUSE WHEN IT'S DARK IN THE CAB YOU CAN'T SEE AT ALL WHAT'S WHAT AS FAR A GEAR SELECTION. I FIND THIS REMARKABLE. AT AGE 49, WITH ALL THE CARS WE'VE OWNED AND ALL I'VE HAD UNTIL OVER 100,000 MILES, NEVER DO I RECALL ANY DASHBOARD TYPE INDICATOR LAMPS BURNING OUT, I THOUGHT THEY JUST MADE THEM THAT WAY BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT REPLACEABLE OR SOMETHING. I ASSUMED THEY WERE LIKE NEON OR LIGHT EMITTING DIODES THAT CAN NEVER BURN OUT AND WOULD FUNCTION FOREVER OR UNTIL SOMETHING PHYSICALLY BROKE THEM. HERE'S A TIP FOR YOU FOLKS AT THE NHTSA AND YOUR FAMILIES: AVOID VOLVO'S IN PARKING LOTS AT NIGHT, TURNS OUT WE HAVE ONLY AN IDEA OF THE GEAR WE'RE IN BEFORE THE CAR STARTS MOVING, IN THE DARK THE LACK OF CERTAINTY PROVIDED BY A MANUFACTURING FAILURE COULD PROVE DANGEROUS.

Summary of Complaint

ABOUT A 1999 V70 GLT VOLVO: THE SUN VISOR IS SAGGING DOWN AND IT UNEXPECTEDLY COMES INTO MY LINE OF SIGHT WHILE DRIVING. TO BE CLEAR, IT'S STRAIGHT AND IN OTHERWISE GOOD CONDITION, BUT IT JUST DOESN'T LOCK UP FLAT TO THE CEILING THE WAY IT SHOULD. CURRENTLY WHILE DEBATING THE RELATIVELY HIGH REPLACEMENT COST - $200 JUST FOR THE PART BECAUSE IT HAS A MIRROR AND LIGHT, I'VE GOT IT STRAPPED UP WITH A NYLON BELT, KEEPING IT OUT OF MY VIEW, BUT THEN I NOW HAVE NOTHING FOR LOW SUN DRIVING CONDITIONS. IT MAY SEEM PETTY TO MENTION THIS AS A SAFETY ISSUE, BUT IT DID COME DOWN AND PRESENT A VISUAL OBSTRUCTION TO ME WHILE DRIVING. ON THE OTHER HAND, THIS HAS NEVER OCCURRED IN MY NOW ALMOST 24 YEAR OLD SAAB, NOT EVEN WITH 240,000 MILES ON IT. NOR DO WE HAVE THIS PROBLEM ON MY WIFE'S '94 ACURA LEGEND, WHERE THERE ARE OVER 140,000 MILES OF USE AND AGE. NOR HAVE I HAD THIS PROBLEM IN OTHER CARS I'VE OWNED, BACK TO AND INCLUDING MY FIRST: THE '73 PINTO I HAD IN COLLEGE, I SOLD IT W/ 105,000 MI. AND DON?T RECALL THIS TYPE OF CONCERN! I JUST THINK ON A NEWER CAR, (THIS OCCURRED ON OUR NEWEST CAR EVER, AND BEFORE 80,000 MILES, I THINK I?VE BEEN FIGHTING TO KEEP THE VISOR UP SINCE 60,000 MI. AND NOW IT?S FINALLY FLOPPED DOWN) ONE SHOULDN'T SUDDENLY HAVE TO BE DODGING THEIR HEAD AROUND THE CAB TO SEE OUT THE FRONT WINDOW, WHILE FIDDLING WITH THE VISOR COMING DOWN, FINALLY PLACING IT TO THE SIDE, WHERE IT STILL SAGS BUT ONLY PROVIDING A MINOR OBSTRUCTION - OBVIOUSLY NOT NEAR AS CRITICAL AS BLOCKING ONE'S FRONT VIEW. SO WHAT AM I TO CONCLUDE: DO I REPLACE IT FOR $200 - PLUS LABOR - (TWO ACTUALLY, THE PASSENGER SIDE ONE IS GETTING READY TO DO THE SAME THING), AND THEN BE SUBJECT TO IT RECURRING? ALSO IT OCCURRED THE NIGHT BEFORE LEAVING ON A ROAD TRIP CT TO ROCHESTER, NY: I.E.: WESTERLY DRIVING INTO THE SUNSET AND THERE WAS NO TIME IN THE TRAVEL SCHEDULE TO DELAY FOR SUCH AN UNEXPECTED REPAIR. I HAD TO MAKE THE DRIVE WITH THE SUN VISOR OUT OF COMMISSION. *TR

BACK IN JUNE OF 2008 - ON START UP MY 99 VOLVO V70 - WOULD ROUGH IDLE, REV TO 4000 AND WOULD NOT EXCEED 20 MPH. THE IDLE SOUNDED LIKE SNEAKERS IN A DRYER. I TOOK THE CAR TO MY GARAGE AND WAS QUOTED $2000.00 TO REPLACE THE ETM - I WAS TOLD BY MY GARAGE THAT THE ETM MAY STILL BE UNDER WARRANTY. AFTER SPEAKING WITH VOLVO USA - I WAS ADVISED THAT THIS PART WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND I SHOULD BRING TO THE NEAREST VOLVO DEALERSHIP. I DID. BOSTON VOLVO VILLAGE - DID A SOFTWARE UPDATE AND AFTER THAT REPORTED NO ISSUES WITH THE ETM - THEY CLAIMED CRACKED VACUUM HOSES WERE THE PROBLEMS. THEY REPLACED THE HOSES AND RETURN THE CAR. THE CAR BROKE DOWN A DAY LATER - REV TO 4000, ROUGH IDLE, WON'T GO OVER 20 MPH - SNEAKERS IN WASHING MACHINE SOUND. I BROUGHT THE CAR BACK TO BOSTON VOLVO VILLAGE - THIS TIME THEY TOLD ME THAT I HAD AN BAD ACCELERATOR PEDAL - WHICH WAS REPLACE COST WAS $225.00. THE CAR BROKE DOWN A THIRD TIME - THIS TIME ON A BUSY HIGHWAY - I WAS ABLE TO PULL OFF - BUT IF NOT FOR SOME EXCELLENT DRIVING BY OTHERS ON THE ROAD THERE WOULD HAD BEEN A 3 CAR PILE UP. BOSTON VOLVO VILLAGE TOWED THE CAR BACK TO THEIR GARAGE. ONE OF THEIR EMPLOYEES ADMITTED TO ME THAT THE EMT WAS THE PROBLEM - BUT THAT VOLVO MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO REPLACE THE ETM. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE IDLE ON MY CAR WAS ROUGH, AND AFTER A MECHANIC FAILED TO TURN UP THE CAUSE I FOUND A REASON ON A VOLVO FORUM ON THE WEB. THE PROBLEM WAS A DIRTY THROTTLE BUTTERFLY VALVE. I CLEANED IT IN ACCORDANCE TO THE VOLVO SERVICE BULLETIN. FIVE THOUSAND MILES LATER I AM DRIVING MY CAR IN STOP AND GO TRAFFIC AND THE CAR STARTS SPUTTERING, RACING, AND THE ENGINE IS GENERALLY BEHAVING POORLY. I FOUND THAT I COULD EVEN OUT THE IDLE AND KEEP THE CAR FROM STALLING IN TRAFFIC BY KEEPING MY RIGHT FOOT DEPRESSING THE ACCELERATOR AT ALL TIMES, AND USING MY LEFT FOOT FOR THE BRAKE. I WAS NOT IN ANY ACCIDENTS, BUT ALMOST GOT REAR ENDED AT LEAST ONCE. *NM

Summary of Complaint

THE TENSIONER BEARINGS IN MY 1999 VOLVO V70 SEIZED, THUS CAUSING THE TIMING BELT TO FAIL, CAUSING THE CYLINDERS TO HIT AND BEND THE VALVES. THE RECOMMENDED SERVICE INTERVAL FOR THIS EQUIPMENT IS 105,000 MILES OR 72 MONTHS; THE VEHICLE HAS 76,200 MILES AND IS ABOUT 72 MONTHS OLD. IT'S UNCLEAR TO ME WHETHER THIS TYPE OF FAILURE AT HIGHWAY SPEED WOULD CAUSE THE CAR TO SUDDENLY FAIL, WHICH MIGHT CAUSE A CRASH. I HAVE NOT YET HAD THIS REPAIRED, BUT WILL SAVE ALL PARTS IF NHTSA IS INTERESTED. *NM
