The car has intermittent noise coming from the right side hub bearing. The dealer and volvo corp refusing to fix the issue and even put the car on the lift. If hub will seize it can cause a big accident if it will be on the highway. All the dealer and volvo rap did was drove the car around the block didn't hear the noise and refusing to diagnose more and replace the faulty part. Volco corp close the case on this issue and refusing to open another one. Meanwhile the car not very safe to drive. Same issue was with left side and it took volvo month to finally replace it even they herd the noise but didnt wanna believe it was the hub. Dealer is kundert volvo of hasbrouck

2016 Volvo V60CC
Parts: ENGINE
  • Date of Incident: Jul-01, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 16:08 Jul-02, 2020

While the car was in motion, going down a steep (approximately 10 degree decline) the no oil pressure alarm was triggered and system instructions to pull over and stop engine immediately. The car was taken to the closest volvo dealer and it was determined the piston rings had failed/were failing leading to rapid, excessive oil consumption. Volvo has been aware of faulty piston and oil control rings in their engines made from 2012-2016 and have developed a remediation procedure. This is an extremely unsafe design flaw in these vehicles which could result in engine seizure.

2020 Volvo XC90
Parts: SUSPENSION
  • Date of Incident: May-15, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 14:07 Jun-19, 2020

Purchased a new 2020 xc90 t6 inscription with the air suspension. From the first time pulling into our driveway, there was a distinct, muffled, aggressive "thump" in the front and rear end. The sound is independently from the front or rear suspension, depending on which is going over a bump. This occurs consistently when in slow speeds and going over an abrupt bump, such as a speed bump or an aggressive cut out in a driveway which is made for water run off. Once the suspension compresses, the thump occurs on decompression (rebound). I took it into the original dealer (volvo of tucson). A 2019 xc90 t8 momentum (with air suspension) was given as a loaner. As expected, the loaner vehicle made the exact same thump sound from the front and rear suspension over the exact same bumps. The dealer could not replicate the sound on my car. I provided them with nhts id #'s: 10148803 and 10128173 (volvo bulletin #'s: tj32978 and tj3303. 1. 1). No response yet as to the problem or correction.
