VOLVO V70 Vehicle Speed Control

VOLVO V70 1999 Vehicle Speed Control Report #745877

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Aug 22, 1999.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by Volvo Cars of N.A., LLC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . 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.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1LW55A0X2.

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 06, 2003.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by Volvo Cars of N.A., LLC had a problem with SEATS . TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: WE BOUGHT OUR NEW VOLVO V70 GLT WAGON IN 1999 FROM KRAMER MOTOR, SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA. JUST RECENTLY THE AIRBAG SAFETY LIGHT (SRS) WENT OFF AND I WAS TOLD BY THE AUTHORIZED VOLVO SERVICE DEALER (RUSNAK, PASADENA) THAT IT MEANT SOMETHING WAS WRONG IN THE AIRBAG SYSTEM AND VOLVO WOULD REPLACE THE AIRBAG. ON THE DAY OF THE REPAIR THE DEALER CALLED AND TOLD ME THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY SEAT COVERS - THE COVERS WERE NOT AUTHORIZED VOLVO SEAT COVERS (DRIVER AND PASSENGER) AND THEREFORE THE VOLVO AIRBAG FEATURE MIGHT NOT WORK. SINCE WE BOUGHT THIS CAR NEW FROM A VOLVO DEALER, WE DID NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THIS SITUATION COULD HAPPEN. VOLVO INFORMED US THAT DEALERS WILL SOMETIMES CHANGE FACTORY PARTS, IF THEY WANT TO, AND THAT VOLVO CAN NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND DOES NOT ACCEPT ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT THEIR DEALERS DO. SINCE THIS DEALER CHANGED A FEATURE THAT HAS SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUES, AGAIN WE COULD NOT BELIEVE THIS SITUATION IS CORRECT. HOW IS A CONSUMER PROTECTED IN SUCH A MATTER? WE BOUGHT FROM AN AUTHORIZED DEALER AND HOW ARE WERE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW OR EVEN SUSPECT THAT CRITICAL SAFETY ELEMENTS MIGHT NOT BE FUNCTIONING? VOLVO AMERICA AND THEIR LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE, MICHAEL LAFATA, SEEM TO FEEL THAT IT IS JUST A CASE OF LET THE BUYER BEWARE. THE VOLVO AMERICA CUSTOMER SERVICE SUPERVISOR, KATHLEEN NATALE, WAS MORE UNDERSTANDING AND TRIED TO HELP BUT SHE HAD TO DEFER TO MR. LAFATA'S DECISION THAT VOLVO WOULD NOT REPLACE THESE SEAT COVERS TO RETURN THE AIRBAG SAFETY FEATURE TO AN OPERATING CONDITION. RATHER, RUSNAK VOLVO PUT MY CAR BACK TOGETHER WITH THE NON-VOLVO SEAT COVERS AND SENT ME ON MY WAY WITH A STACK OF PAPERWORK THAT CLEARLY SAYS THAT MY CAR MAY NOT BE SAFE BECAUSE THE AIRBAG FEATURE MAY NOT WORK WITH THE CURRENT SEAT COVERS. AS YOU CAN SEE BELOW, NO ONE HAS BEEN INJURED OR DIED YET, BUT CLEARLY THIS IS A SAFETY PROBLEM THAT WE BELIEVE VOLVO AMERICA SHOULD QUICKLY ADDRESS. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1LW56D0X2.

VOLVO V70 1999 Vehicle Speed Control Cables Report #10064428

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 02, 2004.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by Volvo Cars of N.A., LLC had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CABLES . WHILE OPERATING THE SUBJECT VEHICLE, A VOLVO 1999 MODEL V70R AWD, AND ATTEMPTING A LEFT HAND TURN THROUGH TRAFFIC UNDER A GREEN LIGHT, THE THROTTLE CONTROL SYSTEM FAILED. AS THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC CLEARED SUFFICIENTLY FOR A SAFE LEFT HAND TURN, THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL WAS DEPRESSED TO EXECUTE THE LEFT TURN BUT THE ENGINE AND VEHICLE DID NOT RESPOND. THE VEHICLE ONLY IDLED FORWARD INTO APPROACHING TRAFFIC. THE VEHICLE HAD TO BE TURNED OFF AND RESTARTED IN ORDER TO GET THE THROTTLE TO RESPOND. IN MY OPINION, THIS FAILURE IS EQUIVALENT TO THE THROTTLE CABLE SNAPPING ON A FOUR YEAR OLD VEHICLE WITH ONLY 60,000 MILES. IF THE RATE OF INCIDENCE OF OCCURRENCE IS SOMEHOW REPRESENTED BY THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS EVIDENT ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB, THEN THIS IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE. IT IS LIKELY THAT PROPERTY AND PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HURT BY THIS THROTTLE FAILURE AND THIS PROBLEM SHOULD BE CORRECTED BY A RECALL. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 65115 miles.

WHEN APPROACHING A TOLL OR IN TRAFFIC) AND THEN WOULD COMPLETELY STALL ONCE I EXITED THE HIGHWAY ONTO THE LOCAL ROADS AND WAS DRIVING AT A SLOWER SPEED. IT APPEARED TO HAPPEN MORE FREQUENTLY WHEN I HAD A FULL TANK OF GAS AND/OR THE AIR CONDITIONER WAS ON. IT WOULD RE-START FAIRLY EASILY. THE VOLVO DEALER WHERE WE PURCHASED THE CAR (SUMMIT, NJ) LOOKED AT THE CAR IN MAY AND COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG, AS THE COMPUTER DID NOT REGISTER ANY FAILURE; THEY RETURNED THE CAR TO US AS IS. IT CONTINUED TO HAPPEN PERIODICALLY AND EVENTUALLY WOULD NOT RE-START. ON MONDAY, JUNE 13 I HAD IT TOWED TO A LOCAL REPAIR SHOP IN JERSEY CITY WHO COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG; THEY RETURNED THE CAR TO US AS IS. ON FRIDAY, JUNE 17, WE THEN BROUGHT IT TO ANOTHER VOLVO DEALER (MONTCLAIR, NJ) WHERE THREE MECHANICS LOOKED AT IT OVER THE COURSE OF ONE WEEK AND COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG, AGAIN CITING THAT THE COMPUTER DID NOT REGISTER ANY FAILURES. IT HAS HAPPENED A FEW MORE TIMES, SO NOW IT IS AT ANOTHER LOCAL REPAIR SHOP (GARWOOD, NJ) WHERE THE MECHANIC CAN FIND NOTHING WRONG. I HAVE NOT DRIVEN THE CAR SINCE MID-JUNE AS I HAVE TWO SMALL CHILDREN AND DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING A CAR THAT CAN STALL WITHOUT WARNING IN HIGHWAY TRAFFIC AND BE SLAMMED FROM BEHIND. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 59000 miles.

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Aug 01, 2005.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE MODULE IN MY 1999 VOLVO V70 AS BEGUN TO FAIL WITHOUT WARNING. OFTEN THE PROBLEM WILL FIX ITSELF UPON RESTARTING. HOWEVER, WHEN THE MODULE FAILS (AND THE ETS LIGHT COMES ON IN THE DASH), AN EXTREMELY SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER IS EXPERIENCED---ENOUGH THAT IT COULD EASILY LEAD TO A LOSS OF CONTROL. THE PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED AT LEAST 15 TIMES IN THE PAST 2 DAYS, AND IS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD. VOLVO, IN THE OWNERS MANUAL FOR THE CAR, INDICATES THAT THIS FAILURE MAY SOMETIMES OCCUR (IN THE SECTION DESCRIBING THE ETS LIGHT) AND SUGGEST TRYING TO RESTART THE CAR. WHILE RESTARTING THE CAR DOES OFTEN WORK, I FIND THIS TO BE AN UNACCEPTABLE AND VERY SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD. VOLVO'S SOLUTION FOR ME IS TO REPLACE THE THROTTLE MODULE AT $1000 OR MORE. MANY HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS SAME PROBLEM, THOUGH, AND THE DEFECT SEEMS TO BE CLEARLY SYSTEMIC. WHAT'S MORE, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT VOLVO'S REPLACEMENTS WON'T EXHIBIT PRECISELY THE SAME PROBLEM. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 98500 miles.

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on July 29, 2005.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . MY NAME IS FELIPE STEVENSON AND I CURRENTLY OWN A 1999 VOLVO V70. ON AUGUST 1, I HEARD ON THE NEWS THAT NHTSA WAS INVESTIGATING A POTENTIAL ENGINE PROBLEM WITH VOLVOS. THIS WAS THE SAME DAY I WAS TAKING MY CAR TO A LOCAL VOLVO DEALER FOR ITS 150,000 MILES SERVICE AND ONE OF THE PROBLEMS I WAS PLANNING TO REPORT WAS THAT THE CAR STALLS OCCASIONALLY WHEN I AM DRIVING OR JUST LOOSES SPEED. I HAVE REPORTED THIS PROBLEM IN THE PAST TWO YEARS TO AT LEAST THREE VOLVO DEALERS IN THE NEW YORK/NEW JERSEY METROPOLITAN AREA AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD IN ALL OCCASIONS THAT THE PROBLEM COULD NOT BE REPLICATED WHEN CONDUCTING THE SERVICE. THE STALLING PROBLEM BEGAN IN 2003 AND HAS HAPPENED 12 TIMES TO DATE. IN ONE OCCASION I WAS DRIVING AT 50 MILES AN HOUR IN A HIGHWAY WHEN THIS HAPPEN. MY WIFE AND MY CHILD WERE IN THE CAR THEN. WE WERE ALL UNHARMED. WHEN I TOOK MY CAR TO THE VOLVO DEALER ON AUGUST 1, I GOT A CALL FOR THE SERVICE PERSON AND I WAS TOLD THAT THE THROTTLE OF THE CAR HAD AN INTERNAL FAULT AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED FOR ALMOST $1,000. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT THIS WAS THE REASON WHY MY CAR WAS STALLING OR LOOSING SPEED. HOWEVER, KNOWING THAT THE CAR MODEL IS CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR A SIMILAR PROBLEM, I DECIDED NOT TO FIX IT UNTIL THE OUTCOME OF THE INVESTIGATION IS KNOWN. IN MY OPINION, THIS PROBLEM EXISTS WITH THE VOLVO MODELS -- INCLUDING MINE - AND ENCOURAGE THE NHTSA TO PURSUE THE INVESTIGATION . THANK YOU. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1LW55A2X2. Volvo V70 1999 problem was reported in NEW YORK, NY. Original Owner.

WERE IT TO OCCUR WHEN CHANGING LANES OR MERGING, I FEAR THE SITUATION COULD BE QUITE BAD. ALTHOUGH VOLVO RECOMMENDS REPLACING THE ETM FOR $1000+, I AM RELUCTANT TO DO SO, NOT LEAST BECAUSE OTHERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM HAVE SPENT THE MONEY TO REPLACE THE MODULE, AND THEN ENDED UP WITH THE SAME PROBLEM AGAIN.

I WAS DRIVING SOUTH ON I-85 IN DULUTH, GA. THIS STRETCH OF METRO ATLANTA INTERSTATE HAS SIX LANES IN EITHER DIRECTION AND TRAFFIC WAS FLOWING AT SPEEDS OF AROUND 75 MPH. THE ETS LIGHT CAME ON WHEN WE WERE IN THE FAR LEFT (FAST) LANE, THE CAR BEGAN LOSING POWER. I MOVED TO THE RIGHT AS BEST I COULD AND GOT OFF AT THE NEXT EXIT. BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE EXIT RAMP, THE CAR WAS SKIPPING AND MISSING BADLY. MY DAUGHTER LOOKED UP ETS IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL AND, BASED ON WHAT THE MANUAL SAID, I CUT THE CAR OFF AND WAITED A FEW MINUTES FOR IT TO RESET. I CRANKED IT BACK UP AND WE LIMPED THE REST OF THE WAY HOME. SINCE THEN I HAVE ONLY STARTED IT ONCE, BUT IT WAS RUNNING ROUGH SO I DID NOT GO ANYWHERE. CONSIDERING WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED ABOUT ETM FAILURES SINCE THIS HAPPENED AND THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC IN ATLANTA, I HAVE BEEN SCARED TO DRIVE IT.

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Nov 03, 2005.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . THE THROTTLE ON OUR 1999 VOLVO V70 HAS FAILED. THE PROBLEM WAS NOTICED BY UNUSUAL THROTTLE BEHAVIOR ON THE FREEWAY AT 60 - 70 MILES PER HOUR. AFTER THIS BEHAVIOR HAD OCCURRED SEVERAL TIMES OVER A PERIOD OF MONTHS, THE ETS LIGHT CAME ON INDICATING A THROTTLE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM CAUSED AN UNUSUAL FEELING TO DRIVING THE CAR AS IF THERE WERE SOME RESISTANCE OR IMPEDIMENT TO THE ENGINE RUNNING PROPERLY. THE ETS WARNING LIGHT CAME ON THE DATE BELOW LISTED AS "INCIDENT DATE," BUT THE PROBLEM WAS OCCURRING OVER A FEW MONTH PERIOD BEFORE THAT DATE. THE ETS LIGHT DID NOT STAY ON, BUT THERE IS CLEARLY A PROBLEM WITH THE THROTTLE. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER, LEE VOLVO IN WELLESLEY, MA AND WAS TOLD THE THROTTLE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS WORRISOME, BECAUSE THE MANUAL SAYS TO TURN THE CAR OFF AND BACK ON WHEN THE ETS LIGHT COMES ON, BUT THE ETS LIGHT WILL NOT CONSISTENTLY INDICATE A PROBLEM, WHEN THE THROTTLE IS DEFECTIVE AS OURS IS. WE OWN A 2000 VOLVO S70, WHICH I UNDERSTAND MAY HAVE THE SAME THROTTLE, AND THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING A RECALL FOR VOLVO THROTTLES. IT IS EXPENSIVE TO REPLACE THE THROTTLE $1,000+, AND DANGEROUS AS IT IS A PROBLEM WHICH MAY ARISE AT 70 MILES AN HOUR WITH NO WARNING. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 73000 miles.

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Apr 14, 2006.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . I PURCHASED THIS CAR, A 1999 VOLVO V-70 STATION WAGON, IN 2002. THE CAR INTERMITTENTLY AND REPEATEDLY STALLS IN TRAFFIC IN ADDITION TO RANDOMLY ACCELERATING AND DECELERATING ON ITS OWN SO THAT DRIVING IS HAZARDOUS. CAR HAS BEEN SERVICED NUMEROUS TIMES FOR THESE PROBLEMS AND MOST OF THE WORK HAS BEEN ON ELECTRONIC THROTTLE SYSTEM. PROBLEMS MAY APPEAR TO BE FIXED FOR A SHORT TIME BUT NOT REALLY FIXED BECAUSE STALLING AND UNEXPECTED ACCELERATION/DECELERATION BEGIN AGAIN. CAR HAS PROBLEM UNIQUE TO IT IN THAT IT FAILS TO PRODUCE COMPUTER CODES REGARDING STALLING OR ETM FAILURE, AND BECAUSE CAR FAILS INTERMITTENTLY, EXCEPT FOR ONE MECHANIC, ALL OTHERS WHO HAVE SERVICED THE CAR HAVE FAILED TO EXPERIENCE THE STALLING AND RANDOM ACCELERATION/DECELERATION FIRST HAND. WHAT TO DO WITH A CAR THAT RELIABLY FAILS INTERMITTENTLY, FAILS TO FAIL WHEN THE MECHANIC NEEDS IT TO FAIL TO BE ABLE TO FIX IT AND PRODUCES NO COMPUTER CODES AS TO WHY IT IS FAILING? ON 7 APRIL, 2006, I TOOK CAR TO VOLVO OF RICHARDSON, RICHARDSON TX TO SERVICE THE PROBLEM OF THE CAR STALLING REPEATEDLY IN THE PREVIOUS FEW DAYS. THEY UPGRADED THE ETM SOFTWARE BUT THE CAR CONTINUED TO STALL AND STUTTER IN TRAFFIC. IN FACT, IT SEEMED THE STUTTERING AND SHUTTERING (NEAR STALLS) WERE WORSE. I HAD THE CAR TOWED BACK TO DEALER AND ASKED ABOUT THE REPAIRS UNDER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY AS PER NHTSA ACTION: EA05021. SERVICE DIRECTOR FOR DEALER REFUSED TO REPLACE ETM UNDER EXTENDED WARRANTY SAYING THEY WOULD NOT BE REIMBURSED IF THEY COULDN'T REPRODUCE THE STALLING ETC. LIKEWISE, AT VOLVO CUSTOMER CARE (1-800- 458-1552), "BART" REFUSED TO AUTHORIZE REPAIRS COVERED UNDER EXTENDED WARRANTY OF EA05021. THE NUMBER OF FAILURES/INCIDENTS OF CAR STALLING AND UNEXPECTEDLY ACCELERATING AND DECELERATING ARE TOO NUMEROUS TO COUNT ANYMORE. THE CAR RELIABLY STALLS INTERMITTENTLY AND REPEATEDLY. LAST INCIDENT OF STALLING WAS 14 APRIL 2006 WHEN THE CAR STALLED FOUR TIMES IN TRAFFIC. *JB.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1LW55A5X2.

I AM WRITING BECAUSE MY CAR HAS LOST POWER WITHOUT WARNING. I HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS SEVERAL TIMES, FORTUNATELY NONE IN LIFE THREATENING SITUATIONS LIKE PULLING ONTO A BUSY ROAD OR FREEWAY. THE DEALER RELOADED THE SOFTWARE, BUT THE ETS LIGHT CAME BACK ON WITHIN A FEW DAYS. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALER, THEY KEPT IT A WEEK, TEST DROVE IT FOR SOME TIME AND SAID THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE THEY COULD DO. I ASKED THE VOLVO SERVICE MANAGER, GREG, AT TURNER VOLVO IN SACRAMENTO WHETHER VOLVO KNOWS WHAT THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM AND WHETHER THIS SOFTWARE FIXES IT. HE SAID THAT IT FIXES THE PROBLEM IN 95% OF THE CASES. HE REFUSED TO ANSWER WHETHER THE SPECIFIC PROBLEM THAT CAUSES THE LOSS OF POWER HAS BEEN ADDRESSED BY THE SOFTWARE THEY RECENTLY LOADED AND WHETHER IT IS CORRECTED IN MY PARTICULAR VEHICLE. SINCE I HAVE DRIVEN THIS CAR OVER 180,000 MILES WITH ONLY RECENT PROBLEMS, THIS IS INDEED A RARE OCCURRENCE. MY CONCERN IS THAT NEITHER GREG AT TURNER VOLVO (916)488-2400. OR FRANK AT VOLVO CUSTOMER CARE 800-458-1552 X 1981, SEEMS TO BE WILLING TO STATE THAT THE DEFECT THAT CAUSES THE POWER LOSS PROBLEM HAS BEEN ELIMINATED FROM MY CAR. I ASKED FRANK WHETHER VOLVO WAS WILLING TO PUT IN WRITING THAT THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AND ELIMINATED FROM MY VEHICLE, AND FRANK SAID HE DID NOT KNOW WHETHER VOLVO IS WILLING TO DO THAT. I HAVE OPENED A FORMAL COMPLAINT WITH VOLVO AND AM AWAITING THEIR RESPONSE. *JB .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 188500 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1LW56DXX2.

VOLVO V70 1999 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Report #10238089

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2005.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . 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 .Mileage was 59000 miles. Volvo V70 1999 problem was reported in SOUTH WINDSOR, CT. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 35 mph.

VOLVO V70 Visibility

VOLVO V70 1999 Visibility Report #10238098

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2008.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with VISIBILITY . 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 .Mileage was 70000 miles. Volvo V70 1999 problem was reported in SOUTH WINDSOR, CT. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 45 mph.

VOLVO V70 1999 Power Train Automatic Transmission Report #10238101

VOLVO V70 1999 car safety problem was reported on June 01, 2008.VOLVO V70 1999, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . 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.
