When It’s Time To Move On
Moving on… and what did you buy? Wheelsup: “Our cars are getting older. I was a regular around here for years. I punched a bunch of tickets, with the evap repair and transmission swap being my biggest achievements. Also did the full timing belt replacement, including getting one of the bad batches of rollers that had the belt riding off the cams (anyone remember that?!?).”
2004 S80 T6 Maintenance / Road Trip
MVS Forums favorite June takes another road trip in her smooth-as-silk, well maintained 2004 S80 T6… “You never know when a emergency will require a long road trip. A couple weeks back I put Baby my 2004 S80 T6 into Volvo for her 180K service with a transmission fluid exchange with Genuine Volvo fluid of course. I had forgotten to mention the squeaky front brake so I took her back yesterday for that. Thanks to the fact my dealer does all my repairs Volvo warranted the pads and rotors at no cost to me though they were replaced 25K miles and more than a year ago. Volvo does take care of their customers.”
