problem #2

Jan 162016


  • 6,000 miles


Driving straight down a road and at a speed of around 40 mph, all warning lights flashed and the engine shut down. After a distance, the car came to a stop and I attempted to restart it. I shifted the car into park and was finally able to get the engine to restart.

problem #1

Dec 182015


  • 200 miles
Purchased a brand new 2016 Volvo S60 - the car at incident date had 200 miles on it. While driving in traffic on a California freeway - the car lost all power, steering, lights, etc while in the number 4 of 7 lane freeway at night. The car was blacked out, no lights, no power, no engine, stalled without power in the middle of the freeway. - we were almost killed as a result of this incident. There were numerous collisions that occurred behind and around us as a result of this car being dead in the water in the middle of the freeway at night. I have video from inside the car as 18 wheel semis skidded sideways, almost killing us at 60mph from behind - as well as many other cars. Fast forward to an explanation from Volvo - the dealer stated that the car told itself that it ran out of gas with 1/4 gas in the tank. Stated there was some sort of fuel sending issue and they were trying to evaluate. We still have heard nothing, other than it will be two to three weeks at the dealer - we havnt even had this brand new car that long.
