2004 Volvo XC70 Owner Comments

Since the purchase in August 2003, my C70 convertible has turning problems and I can't safely make a U-turn in traffic or park in a parking space. The wheel turns only to a certain point and then stops. The incompetent Volvo service dept. Has said that I need my "stops" adjusted - why would they be there in the first place" I bring the car in for service and they do some meaningless service and the steering is temporarily fixed for a short period of time. When I brought it in to service another time, they told me my tires were the wrong size - it's the tires that Volvo put on the car, not me. The steering wheel shakes significantly between 30-45 mph and, again, they told me it's the tires. The auto-dim mirror does not dim since I leased the vehicle and Volvo service told me that it only works when headlights from oncoming traffic hits the sensor. What???" I have literally been blinded by traffic behind me that I pull over to the side of the road until they pass. The mirror does not work and is causing me not to drive at night for my own safety. Volvo has produced an unsafe vehicle and will not take responsibility for it. I take my life in my hands every time I get into the vehicle. I know other Volvo owners that are experiencing the steering wheel shaking problem and they are not getting satisfaction. I have also talked other people and advised them not to lease or purchase this C70 convertible. My car is 18 months old and I have only 12000 miles on it because I am frightened to drive it.
