I bought this 2017 v60 from crippen volvo in 2019 with only around 1000miles on it. I am the first owner. The transmission act weirdly on the second day i bought it. It has a powe cut between 1st gear and 2 nd gear, just like drving a manual. (only when it is completely warm) bring it to crippen volvo, they update the software of tcm, things get better a bit. But still jerky from 1st gear to 2nd gear. Bring it to suburban volvo, they reset everything of the software. Things get better a bit, but the problem came back several days after that. In march 2020, bring it to suburban volvo again, technician there opened a case with volvo usa, volvo usa told them to replace the whole transmission. Job got down after a month. In late april, problem com back again, the new transmission jerky from 1st to 2nd gear when it is completely warm, (just get off the highway) i don't know how they will handle it next. I will go there again on 4/30 i also hear popping noise from the fuel tank every time i top up the fuel tank. It seems like is the bad fuel pump causes the problem.
The power get cut when shifting from 1st gear to 2nd gear. Feel more jerky when uphill. The fuel tank make popping noise (like boiling water) when it is full to the top (100%)
The low pressure fuel sensor on these vehicles is known by manufacturer to fail. This failure can cause hard start conditions, taking over 5 seconds at times to start the vehicle. The main danger of this comes from the fact this is a vehicle equipped with auto stop/start technology. I have experienced near misses due to coming to a stop at a stop sign and then taking over 5 seconds on occasion for the vehicle to restart the engine. On vehicles with worn fuel pumps this issue could manifest as loss of power under heavy engine load, such as climbing a hill or accelerating from a stop. The failure mode is open circuit, meaning at some point prior to failure there is also a chance of high resistance which on a fuel system component could lead to excessive heat and fire. The manufacturer is aware of the issue and has issued an extended warranty for the part was offered for 8 years 80,000 miles. I do not believe this is an appropriate response and a recall should be issued for the part due to its safety related consequences.
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, DEALERSHIP INSPECTED AND DETERMINED THE FUEL FILLER PIPE HAD A LEAK WHICH WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY (23K MILES). I WAS INFORMED THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE WITH THE XC90 AND THEY TOO WERE SURPRISED A RECALL HAS NOT BEEN ISSUED.
