Every Volvo Fix? Maybe.
Welcome to the most complete collection of help for you and your Volvo on the Internet. As of this writing, there are
900 1154 of them.
New Repairs Constantly Added
We add them every week, if not every day. We do it because we want to organize the vast pool of Volvo knowledge that exists online. Most of these repairs are in the Volvo Forum, while a few are their own pages, and a few others are offisite. We don’t care where the item lives, if it’s offsite or here, we want to be the #1 organizer of Volvo maintenance tips and help.
Viewing Volvo repairs by category breaks down the repairs into groups like Engine, Transmission, Interior, etc. It cuts accross all models, so you’ll see fixes for V40 to XC90 models, and everything in-between.
Very easy to read and understand. Click here to see Repairs by Category.
Viewing the Volvo Repair Database by car model — as you might have guessed — organizes the 900+ repairs by car type. What you gain is that the the scope of displayed fixes is limited to just your car.
What you lose is the chance that you’ll understand your car’s problem by reading about the same issue on another Volvo model. Click here to see Repairs by Volvo Model.
Viewing every VRD repair is just the whole long long list of repairs. They’re sorted A-Z by title, and the page is very large.
Not very useful if you’re looking for something specific, but fun to browse. Click here to see the Everything List.
Common Volvo Parts = Cross-Posted Repairs
When you begin looking at each of these repairs, often the repair will appear, for example, in the 850 category, the S70 & V70 category, and the XC70 category. Don’t worry, they’re not miscategorized! Instead, the information contained in the post is relevant to all those models because Volvo used common parts across models, and across generations of the same model.
For instance, the 850‘s engine was used in the S60, XC90, C30, S70, V70, C70 and a handful of other Volvos, and (some) repairs to the engine are the same across all those models. So if you see an XC70 repair in the S60 category, for instance, it’s because the repair is the same or very similar for S60s.
