Notes: It's widely known that Volvo’s are built like tanks, especially the XC70. So it's no surprise this beast has a near perfect crash test rating. When it comes to the 2nd generation of the XC70, the 2006 is the first year that doesn't show potential transmission problems making it a best bet.

Coil spring broke backing out of driveway plunging into drivers side tire, my friend has a 2007 XC70 and the same thing happened to them. Very concerning at highway speeds would have been deadly. Please investigate.

Loud rattle noise front driver's side. I was on my way for service for the 110,000 checkup. My mechanic said it was the front coil spring that let go. He said he has had 9 other cars in the shop in the past 2 weeks with the identical problem. It is a safety issue because had I been on the highway and the coil spring let go, it could have blown the tire or loss of steering control.

The car pulls to the right. Alignment was checked and was slightly off. It was corrected but the car still pulls to the right. I drove one other XC70 that was a loaner car from the dealer and it drove the same.
