My 2004 Volvo XC70 died twice night and once during the day while driving at high speed on two crowded highways around New York city. The engine totally shut off, the lights went out and luckily I was going fast enough to roll over to the shoulder. This is a car I keep regularly maintained at a Volvo dealer service center as well. Someone made me aware of a Volvo customer blog where several other people had the same problem.

I have 70K miles on my 2004 Volvo XC70 and noticed strong gasoline smell from the gas tank area. The car often would not start, especially if parked on the incline. Upon inspection, an independent mechanic found a gasoline leak around the gas pump area and suggested to fix it as a safety hazard. The gas pump pipe has a crack in it.

Multiple check engine lights but no clear issue discovered. Now the car vibrates when I start driving it and at times I can floor the gas pedal and not go over 20 mph. I am told it is the fuel pump that needs replacing though it did not show up as an issue from the check engine light diagnosis. Also, spark plugs were changed in Sept 0'7 yet were changed again at the 60K check up two weeks ago.
