Stranded on I-85 when engine blew a rod!
By Roger on
2007 Volvo S40 2.4i 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
I have about 69,050 miles on a 2007 Vovlo s-40. I have changed the oil every 30000-4000 miles, and had service checkups on regular bases. I was stranded last night on I-85 when my car threW a rod, forming two holes in the engine block. The mechanic that took my car in was blown away and said he had never seen anything like this. Nice clean oil rain out of the car and the small pieces that fell out of the motor were nice and shiny because there was no "gunk" in the motor due to the good service history. Please someone tell me if this is not a sorry car. I will never own a Volvo again, and please if you are thinking about buying a Volvo-DO NOT BUY A VOLVO, YOU WILL BE SORRY. U WILL BE STRANDED
NOTHING! IT LEFT ME STRANDED WITH A TROWN ROD AT 69,050 MILES. REGULAR SERVICE WAS UP TO DATE, AND OIL CHANGED. NOTHING IS GOOD ABOUT VOLVO.
MAKE A BETTER CAR THAT WILL NOT LEAVE YOU STRANDED AND A LARGE SERVICE BILL TO REPLACE THE SORRY ENGINE YOU PUT INSIDE MY 2007 S-40.
