The dashboard began making loud noises. Dealership informed me that dash has come loose from firewall and needs to be replaced because when screws came loose it broke the clips holding it on. New dash is $2k w/o labor. Volvo has this same issue in 1997 and 1998 models and will not do anything about it. Volvo told me that if it happened within the manufacturer warranty (4yrs) they would have covered it. Extended warranty does not cover it because it is a structural defect. I purchased a Volvo for safety and for the long term. They don't make them like they used to.
Inside of the car is very roomy. Only downside is the two very small cupholders.
Stand behind your mistakes. I have lost all confidence in Volvo if they could not learn from their mistakes in 1997 and 1998. Are they really looking out for the customer or their bottom line?
