What a nightmare of a vehicle!

Jun 28, 2016

For the first 3 years it was a comfortable car to drive and own and then it started. $750 to replace the thermostat, $5,000 to replace the transmission, then the real troubles began, water in the cabin, about 6 gallons under each floorboard. Seems the vents on the sunroof drain through the roof supports into a 90 degree drain in the wheel well. Once clogged with dirt it overflows into the cabin, flooding the area under the carpets. Of course in that same are are the wiring cables so you start getting shorts. The lights, power steering, windows, A/C, all fail after a thud in the left front dashboard. Volvo America claims there is no issue, yet I have over 20 other owners that have registered the same on my google drive site. That was not the end, we then found the module in the engine compartment also was water damaged. Seems that the windshield cowl drains right over the top of a tray that carries the wiring harness, Again, water with electrical and you get shorts. After $3,600 of module replacement and constant fear of stalling on the freeway, we finally sealed the wiring in silicon and had Xemodex of Toronto rebuild the module. We still get the water in the cabin each Spring, but so far the electrical systems have not failed again. I say stay away especially since Volvo will not support their customers!
