problem #2

Leaving a parking lot and heard loud sound car wouldn't move. Volvo says the following is broken: Lower control arm, cv axle, rotor and damaged rim. We had been parked and were attempting to leaving parking lot(.barely moving) could have been killed if this happened at higher speed. We have constantly spent money on this vehicle and I feel it is unsafe and that when the recalls were made there could have already been a fracture. This car is only driven to work and home on a regular basis. No rough roads. We have not caused any damage. This website does not allow proper selection under Volvo and make to allow selection of the suspension/control arm / rotors / axle / tire rims / ball joint, all of which were damaged in this 4 mph accident. Had this happened at 65 mph I have no doubt me and my family would not have survived.

The contact owns a 2003 Volvo XC90. On June 10, 2008, while driving at an unknown speed and approaching a stop sign, the contact heard a loud noise. Shortly afterwards, the brakes failed to respond; however, she was able to bring the vehicle under control with the emergency brake. The contact slowly drove the vehicle to the dealer and they diagnosed the failure as the brake booster power cylinder. The manufacturer was notified; however, they declined to assist with the $1,036.44 repair cost. The failure and current mileages were 49,271.
