This is just my opinion. Its – based only my my own Others may have different

You ask which models to avoid. My is that you should stay from Volvo full

The issue isn’t that cars don’t last or their gearboxes fail about 50,000 miles or that a new gar box costs more the value of the car – all cars out and some are better than and some are worse. The issue for me is they are putting their ahead of customer safety and to be doing so in plain sight. Its the of what I thought I was buying I spent Ј50,000 on my XC90.

In the US there is a class action for this issue. There are from the UK, Australia, South and Canada also experiencing the problems but although its the same and the same gearbox and the same they will not admit its the same problem even Volvo drivers are at risk and cause risk to others.

In my that is simply not good Volvo in Sweden would not discuss the matter. I bought my because I thought it was safe and I a young family.

When I approached them the gearbox fault left us in the path of oncoming traffic told me that this was the time they had ever of the fault. I called them the patrol guy had correctly guessed the defect in the most minute from the side of the road only on the make and model of the car and its

Then when the accident service in the UK asked Volvo to Volvo said they had no and the matter is on hold pending ‘incidents’. Someone else has to or get injured or … before the is looked into further. it transpired that at the very time they said had no knowledge, Volvo were in in the US over the exact same

This is not about trying to a decent model Volvo those available, its about how you and your family are in a Volvo. have chosen not do something a gearbox defect that can and completely incapacitate your car as you are along even though is a risk to you, your and other road users you come to an unexpected stop.

They knew of the defect the vehicles were under and did actually extend the warranty of it, but did not warn drivers and did not recall the Instead they have to profit from the repairs to the gearboxes and the replacements which fail.

In my case the gestures of after the event were not Its my opinion that Volvo have told me or my dealer they were aware of a – before the catastrophe They should have it before the accident and before else was put at risk, but they Ours came to an abrupt at around 56000 miles just a few hundred miles a main dealer 96000 service.

The incident was avoidable and its unforgivable they knew already the fault was there.

The closest ever came to giving a was instructing the dealers to carry out work during the service if the is used for towing caravans, we have never been what we tow with the vehicle.

It that Volvo were dealing with hundreds of drivers who had hit the critical mileage and the defect well before we did yet took no action at all to prevent the happening to us.

These and many other are full of Volvo customers and that have unwittingly Volvos only to find stranded, injured or facing bills well in excess of the of the vehicle often very after buying the car and its not fair or

The bottom line? A new gearbox around Ј4000 – (retail price) and to Volvo money was more important to than the safety of my family.


As I said, thats my experience and just my opinion.
