Notes: The 2007 XC90 got a facelift -- the good kind, not the "hollywood" kind -- and has so far not had the same transmission problems that a few owners of previous model years have complained about.

Volvo 2007xc90 broken ball joint causing accident-. authormessage janice G mazurek dds Jan 24,2008 location: Ventura California Volvo 2007xc90 broken ball joint causing accident- ________________________________________ without any warning while driving my XC90 with 14,000 miles the right front ball joint fractured causing me to loose steering control and veer off the road. Luckily I was traveling 30 miles an hour with no cars close behind and I was able to move the car safely off the road. The car was towed to the local Volvo dealer. The following day I was told repairs would be in the $10,000 range. Needless to say I was shocked, and I called my insurance company to report the incident. Even though I reported that I did not hit anything in the road they concluded that with this much damage, all on the undercarriage, that I must have. Not wanting to be held responsible for this I was told by the dealer to call the 800 Volvo american number to report the malfunction claim. They sent an "inspector" who concluded that I hit and object with my right front tire rim causing the tire to turn in. The strong ball joint is fractured, it would take some forceful impact for this to happen. There is not a scratch on the body of the car, and the rim is scrapped in one area as a result of driving on the rim after the ball joint failure caused the tire to turn I am faced with costly repairs, a car I will never be able to trust again, and an accident on my unblemished driving record of 35 years.the claim of a faulty ball joint was reported to Volvo-they 'concluded','our observations indicated the damage was the result of some type of impact, forcing the wheel inward."this needs to be investigated for the safety of all drivers.
