Got Volvo Problems?
We’re making the Mother of all Polls in regards to failed parts with the P2 family of Volvos, with the exception of the S80. (I’ll dedicate a poll for that model in the Volvo S80 forum soon). In it you’ll be able to vote on what went wrong with yours, then obviously we can take that data and see which failures are common and which are uncommon.
Bonus! Volvo Facts!
Volvo takes innovation seriously
- Think of a feature that is now taken for granted on the modern automobile and the chances are that Volvo had a hand in developing it. The three-point seat belt was invented by Volvo engineer Nils Bohlin in 1959, though Volvo didn’t patent it as it believes that safety is for everyone.
The company also pioneered the Lambda Sensor catalytic converter in 1976, underscoring its environmental credentials. It introduced the Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) in the 1990s and has since launched a number of collision-prevention devices, such as City Safety, which monitors other road users and brings the car to a halt if an impact looks likely.
