2004 Volvo S60 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 122007

S60 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 49,000 miles


On March 12 my Volvo S-60R was T-boned"by a large SUV ord Explorer that impacted a point near my front driver's-side wheel. The SUV impact caused major damage to the front end by totally removing the Volvo's bumper and mangling the front driver quarter panel down to the chassis. Although my car was sent spinning by the force of the collision. None of the airbags deployed at this initial impact. As my Volvo proceeded to spin clockwise across the pavement it impacted the over pass guard-rail such that the driver's side slammed into the guard-rail, pinning me in the vehicle. Only the passenger front airbag deployed on hitting the guard rail and releasing much smoke into the cabin. Even though this was an abrupt, violent impact, both when the SUV hit me, and when my car slammed into the guard rail the only component of the airbag/collision curtain system to function was the dashboard installed passenger air bag. It is important to note that there was no other person traveling in the Volvo but me. The front passenger seat and the rear seats- were empty. Within about 12 hours of the accident I wrote Volvo America to express my extreme dissatisfaction with the failure of the car's safety system.
