Volvo V70xc 2001 Visibility Windshield Review #755563

VOLVO V70XC 2001 car safety problem was reported on .VOLVO V70XC 2001, manufactured by Volvo Cars of N.A., LLC had a problem with VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD . 6 inch crack in the center of windshield from top then proceeding to the drivers' side about 12 inches. i wasn't aware that anything had even hit the windshield until the serviceman at the dealership pointed it out. even then it was hard to see the mark he was showing me because the mark is about the size of a pinpoint and it is all surface like a scratch. my concern is the safety of the windshield that was installed originally on this car. something so minute should not have caused such a crack if this windshield wasn't defective or improperly installed to start with. this is advertised as an all-terrain vehicle-i've only driven on asphalt and concrete roads! obviously, there is something wrong here. volvo hasn't even tried to alleviate any of my safety concerns regarding this windshield. i question the installation & the grade of windshield used for this type of vehicle. this should not have happened so easily. this does not happen so easily on any other vehicle. why did it happen on this one if the windshield wasn't defective or improperly installed?? am i going to have to worry when that first snowflake hits the windshield?? i need some answers! thank you for your assistance..Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1SZ58D911.

Volvo V70xc 2001 Suspension Front Wheel Bearing Review #759201

VOLVO V70XC 2001 car safety problem was reported on Feb 22, 2002.VOLVO V70XC 2001, manufactured by Volvo Cars of N.A., LLC had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:WHEEL BEARING . the four bolts holding the left front hub/bearing assy to the suspension loosened and backed out. the initial symptom was similar to a warped brake rotor - pulsing during light braking. however, as the bolts continued to back out, one bolt fell out entirely, two became loose, and the last bolt jammed into the rotating front axle. the direction of rotation of the front axle was such that it caused the bolt to back out further and jam against the axle causing binding and grinding a significant portion of the bolt head off. if this had happened at speed - say 55-60 on the dc beltway during rush hour traffic, results could have been disastrous. further, it appears that failure of these bolts can caust the entire front wheel and hub assembly including the brake rotor and caliper to separate from the vehicle. volvo replaced all four bolts on both the left and right front hub assys under warrantee, howevger, there is not recall or tech bulletin on this problem - even though volvo is on the third generation of bolt design for this problem!! i should note that these same bolts and the same design are used on all p26 platform cars (s80, s60, and the 2001 and newer v70 models). failure of the bolts on the left side can cause severe steereing pull to the left when the bolt jams against the drive axle. the problem on the right side is similar except that the bolts will not jam the axle due to the direction of rotation. contact steve seekins at 703-418-8651, sseekins@anteon.com (husband) for further info. can provide vin later..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Volvo V70xc 2001 problem was reported in ANNANDALE, VA.

VOLVO V70XC 2001 car safety problem was reported on May 06, 2005.VOLVO V70XC 2001, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY . 1) driving in urban traffic over a two line bridge in portland oregon. the service indicator light is on for a tail light bulb out. i have scheduled a service appointment for the next week to have it replaced. 2. the car decreases in speed from 50 mph to 20 mph in about 100 feet. traffic behind fortunately is far enough back to avoid collision on a very narrow bridge. i drive the car off the bridge and park it. it is towed the following day to the dealer. 3. the dealer states that it needs a new electronic throttle module. i ask if this is anything unusual, and he states that it is not and they just sometimes need to be replaced. he esimates the cost at $1000 dollars. i complain about the cost and several hours later i am told the part will be free and i only need to pay the 360 dollars for labor. this all seems strange- i feel my life was endangered and perhaps there is more to this problem than something particular to my car. i get on the web and research shows this to be a major problem- including recent articles in the la times. in talking with customer service at volvo north america- it was clear they wanted to find a way to get it fixed so i wouldn't complain to anyone. i suggest, however, that a rapid deaccelleration is a potentially large safety issue and if as web research shows, that many people know about this specfic malfunction- then someone should commence a recall as soon as possible before someone really is hurt. i am having the dealer replace the part now..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 58000 miles.

VOLVO V70XC 2001 car safety problem was reported on July 09, 2005.VOLVO V70XC 2001, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . (1) vehicle is 2001 volvo v70 xc cross country. this vehicle uses an electronic throttle module (etm) manufactured for volvo by magneti marelli. the etm replaces a traditional throttle cable and controls engine speed when pushing on the gas pedal. (2) on july 9, 2005, the electronic throttle module in my 2001 volvo failed as i was entering a highway from a complete stop at an intersecting street. traffic on this highway operates at or above the posted speed limit of 55 mph. i was accelerating at or near wide open throttle when the etm failed. the failure resulted in the etm going into "limp home mode," which caused the throttle to only operate around idle speed (approximately 800 rpm), and not allowing me to continue to accelerate to avoid being hit by approaching traffic. moving forward at idle speed, i was able to maneuver the car between approaching vehicles and coasted onto a grass barrier separating an entrance ramp from the main lanes of traffic. the car then stalled. the car's computer readout on the dashboard displayed "reduced engine performance" and then "engine system failure." this failure occurred without warning, and i was fortunate to not have been involved in a rear end collision. (3) don beyer volvo in falls church, va informed me that the etm had failed after only 49,000 miles. it is my understanding that volvo cars is well aware of this defect and is currently the subject of various investigations and lawsuits surrounding this issue. volvo has reported to the california clean air resources board that up to 94% of etms will fail before the vehicle reaches 100,000 miles. there is no regular maintenance to be performed on the etm. volvo technicians cannot determine when an etm is about to fail. drivers simply have to wait to be unexpectedly stranded. the replacement part is identical or nearly identical to the original etm, making another unexpected and premature failure very likely. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 49000 miles.

LLC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . only 2 days after purchasing our 2001 v70 xc with 64,000 miles with excellent dealer servicing and oil changes, it started idling very erratically, and would stall several times after trying to start it. even when warmed up, the idle was all over the place, running very rough. when driving, especially at lower speeds, we have to maintain a foot on the brake due to the surging and erratic idle so that we do not unintentionally hit the vehicles that are in front of us or at times must keep a foot on the gas pedal to keep the rpm's up so that it won't stall. the check engine light has been on since the first idle symptoms and the problem has been diagnosed as an etm failure. since the vehicle is no longer under warranty, we have not yet had the problem fixed. we feel this poses a safety risk and should not be an issue with just 64000 miles on the car. *ak.Mileage was 64000 miles.

VOLVO V70XC 2001 car safety problem was reported on July 27, 2005.VOLVO V70XC 2001, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i recently purchased a used 2001 volvo xc v70. since the second or third day of ownership i have had ongoing problems with the electronic throttle module. the car will often idle very low and then die, and when this happens, sometimes it won't restart for a while. sometimes the car will start, idle up to about 2000 rpms then die. when this happens, the car usually won't start for hours. the car often lurches forward when it is downshifting from 3rd to 2nd and 2nd to 1st gears. the idle speed will jump as it is downshifting, often causing brief loss of control of the vehicle for a short distance. this is particularly frightening pulling into a parking space. when any of these issues are occuring with the vehicle, it makes driving a very tense and frightening experience. in addition, this particular problem is not something that can be detected with an electronic diagnostic test (which the volvo dealer charges a minimum $108 "diagnostic charge"). volvo knows this is a serious issue with the etm. please hold them responsible for this defective part. i know there are many many people who have this ongoing problem with their cars..Mileage was 82000 miles.

VOLVO V70XC 2001 car safety problem was reported on Feb 10, 2006.VOLVO V70XC 2001, manufactured by VOLVO CARS OF N.A. LLC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . we have experienced the "reduced power mode" on our 2001 volvo xc70 numerous times between dec '05 and feb '06. the vehicle refused to go over 15 mph until the engine was shut-off and restarted. this occurred twice pulling out of our neighborhood onto a major road, entering the highway while attempting to accelerate to highway speed and while attempting a passing maneuver on the highway around 60 mph. in all situations, we were fortunate that someone was not right behind us (my wife and 2 small children) when this occurred, as the potential for an accident is very high. i took the vehicle to my local volvo dealer, where they diagnosed a problem with the electronic throttle module (etm), but stated there was an extended warranty covering this component. however, instead of replacing it immediately, the "procedure" called for cleaning the etm and downloading new software. only after this procedure was followed and that the event recurred (storing a code in memory), would they be allowed to replace the etm. i picked up the car the same night and again, when pulling out of the neighborhood, the familiar "reduced power mode" message was displayed. i do not see why if there is a potential for repeated failure, that volvo would not replace the component immediately, since they are equated with vehicle "safety". the etm will now be replaced, but i cannot say that i will be any more comfortable with driving our xc70. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 74000 miles.

LLC. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY . the events leading up to the failure was a rough idle (vehicle would surge to 1100 rpm and drop to 500 rpm) while at a stop. the vehicle also stalled twice while idling in park. i contacted the volvo dealership to make an appointment for service. on my way home from work the day before i was to drop the vehicle off at the dealership, the vehicle stalled in an intersection. there was a near collision due to the stall. i was able to restart the vehicle and drive it to the shoulder. i called the dealership and described the problem. i asked the service advisor if it would damage the vehicle if i would continue to drive it. he indicated that they could not make a recommendation. i asked them if they would tow the vehicle to their facility. they referred me to a private towing company. there was no answer to the phone number i was given. i decided to wait for the traffic to subside and drive to the dealership using secondary roads. i was able to keep the vehicle running by putting the vehicle in neutral and applying the gas pedal to keep the idle high whenever i approached a stop. when i was approximately 1 mile from the dealership, the gas pedal stopped functioning altogether. the check engine light came on as well as an emission service required message. i turned the vehicle off and restarted it. the gas pedal resumed working but the check engine light and emission service required message continued. i left the vehicle at the dealership (approx. 7:30 p.m. by this time they were closed). the following day, the volvo service advisor informed me that the problem was related to the electronic throttle module (etm). i was told that there was an extended warranty for this part (10-years, 200,000-mile). the service included a cleaning of the part and reloading of software. after learning this, i searched the internet and found this problem was typical to this make and model. it is only a matter of time until your reports will soon show an increase in the injuries. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 59022 miles.

LLC. had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS . was nearly hit in rear when coming to a stop at a stop sign due to failure of brake lamps to light and warn driver behind me. driver behind me skidded off to the side of the road. he flagged me down to advise me that the brake lights on my 2001 volvo xc70 did not work. for this i was thankful. investigation as to why the brake lamps failed to light, led to replacement of both lower lamps and checking the brake light switch for proper continuity. brake lights still do not work. application of the brake pedal results in no power being applied to the brake lamps. the switch is supplying power but not to the lamps. further investigation has shown that there is a recall for the same identical problem for the 2002 model, nhtsa case 04v051000, volvo recall r131. the resolution is the replacement of relays manufactured by tyco electronics which do not meet the original volvo design specifications. my complaint is that my vehicle and others have probably been equipped with these same defective relays and, after calling volvo customer care, volvo refuses to resolve this serious safety issue by not including my vehicle in this recall, which is the first year of this model design change over. i am going to follow through on making the appropriate repairs for the safety of my family. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):YV1SZ58D911.

LLC. had a problem with VISIBILITY:REARVIEW MIRRORS/DEVICES . the original rear view mirror has a special coating to make it unnecessary to flip the mirror up and down to reduce glare from headlights at night. the coating on this mirror appears to have "melted" while the vehicle was parked normally outside our texas home, resulting in warped, obstructed vision in this mirror both day and night. passengers seated in the rear seat appear to have elongated faces when observed in the mirror, and the uneven, irregular view of the street behind makes it difficult to focus and determine where oncoming cars are located. an area of the mirror approximately 3x1 inches no longer has any coating, but still does not reflect clearly. the remainder of the mirror still has the day/night coating, but images in this area are particularly distorted. *tr.Mileage was 131000 miles.
