problem #1

V50 5-cyl

  • 30,000 miles
3 separate issues: 1. electrical: Power windows and power locks sporadically stop working. This started happening around March of 2011. This happens without warning and does not matter if the car is in motion or not. 2. suspension: After only 33,000 miles of driving in southern California mild weather, several parts of the suspension system are broken, including the struts, control arms, and engine mount. 3. visibility: Since purchasing the vehicle, I have experience poor visibility while driving due to the front dash reflecting in the windsheild. This is especially bothersome during sunny weather, which is nearly every day where I live.
