problem #1

  • miles
Vehicle has had a vibration in the front end (not felt in the steering column or gas pedal) at speeds of 35-45 mph since I took possession of the vehicle on 8/25/98. Mileage at vehicle pick up = 279. This was reported to dealer on 9/29/98, (mileage 2035),when I had the speed range and knew it was not caused by road conditions. On November 1, 1998 this manifested into a shake in the front end at highway speeds. This condition, (shake in the front end),occurred again on 11/6/98, also at highway speeds. The shake in the front end has been reported to the dealer and the manufacturer verbally but has not been documented. I have not driven the vehicle since 11/9/98 with the exception of 11/11 and 11/12 to take it to and from the dealer for the third and final repair attempt (current mileage = 4482). I am currently in possession of the necessary documents to file under nh dmv arbitration board for return of the vehicle. Volvo has offered to take the vehicle for identification/repair of the deficiency but I am waiting for nh dmv arbitration to monitor this. I am concerned about the potential for other deficiencies related to this vibration/shake. This vehicle has exhibited other, reported deficiencies; dual climate controls do not work independantly (not fixed), rear view mirror broke off while adjusting (fixed), speaker goes on and off (not fixed), excessive brake dust on front wheels (dealer cleaned off), appearance of a fluid stain on right front wheel (dealer states this is combination of brake dust and condensation caused by excessive heat while braking).
