problem #2

C30 5-cyl

  • 200 miles


Tires were shaky when I bought a brand new C30 Volvo. Asked dealer to fix-sales manager said nothing was wrong (ft. Meyers, fl Volvo). And he would tell Volvo I was crazy. Tires were destroyed at 10,000. Went to different Volvo dealer in sarasota and St. Pete-nothing is wrong. Dealer replaced tires at 10,000. Car still shaking. Now I am on my 3rd set of tires at 50,000. Something is very wrong with this car-do not buy one Volvo will not fix.

C30 5-cyl

  • 21,000 miles
Rear tires worn out on the inside after 21000 miles. 1/32 inside and 5/32 outside tread depth. Unacceptable tire wear as front tires have 4 to 5/32 tread depth across the tire. Note that this car is also a front wheel drive vehicle! authorized Volvo dealer has aligned vehicle at least 2 times! alignment said to be within spec both times! I have facts supporting this to be common occurrence on Volvo C-30 models as witnessed by owners on internet forums. Excessive tire wear by unsuspecting driver can and will lead to unexpected tire blow out causing damage to vehicle and/or injury or death. Similar incidents have happened as pointed out in the Ford Explorer accidents in the 1990S!
