Re: Purchasing a 2007 V70R

Unfortunately, I have not purchased the vehicle yet. Do not want to go overboard with cars since I already have 3 volvos. I know this is a unique one, but figured the maintenance might be too much. It is a beautiful car. Blue exterior/Atacama interior. Would it be foolish to pass it up? Not sure wha...

Re: 1995 850 T-5R Driver Seat Back Stuck

I looked at a video, and it looks like to do the repair, it takes a toll on the upholstery, where you have to zip tie it back? Is there a way around all of this to cause minimal damage? The seats are in perfect condition. Also, how long to do the repair? Looks like both seats don’t go back. Thank yo...

1995 850 T-5R Driver Seat Back Stuck

There seems to be an issue with the electronic controls of my driver seat, where it will move forward/back, up/down...but the seat back will not move forward/back. I initially heard like a grrr noise, but when I got home, I noticed that the motor seems to be working fine. Does anyone have any experi...

1995 850 T-5R - Fuel Smell

I keep my car in the garage and was reading not to top off when fueling. What is the issue with the vehicle that when topped off causes the smell of gasoline to be so noticeable? If the vehicle is not filled all the way up, would this not occur? I notice that the smell is also bad inside the car. Th...

Purchasing a 2007 V70R

Hi,

Looking into getting one of these with about 90K miles. Anything I should be worried about or need to consider? Also, what is a good purchase price?

Thank you!

1996 850R Electrical Issue?

Hi, I noticed sometimes that when I am driving and press the brake, a few things happen. If I have the radio on, it turns off and then back on when released. If I have one of the reading lights on, it dims. The SRS light flashes sometimes for a split second. In addition, the following has happened m...

2008 C70 Timing Belt and Water Pump

I have a 2008 C70 with 77,000 miles. What is the recommended time frame to change the timing belt? Also, when I asked my volvo mechanic about changing the water pump at the same time, he said that those do not normally go bad on the C70, is that true? Just do not want to have to spend money twice sh...

Intermittent Half Second Flashing of SRS Dummy Light

I have noticed lately on my 96 850R, that the SRS Dummy light goes on for about a 1/2 second intermittently. Has anyone experienced this? Looking to find what the issue is and how to take care of it. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

1996 850R Half Shim Replacement

I added half shims a few years ago which solved the freight train rumble, and now the dreaded rumbling has come back. Do Half Shims need to be replaced or is it because the brake pad has worn down. The brakes are not at the point to replace but maybe next service. Any help would be appreciated. Than...
