I'm driving a 'Vord'
By Vord owner on
2002 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
The good is overshadowed by the bad:
Brakes @ 15K miles, windshield @
12K, cruise control / headlights @ 24K,
tires @ 25K. Worst was thermostat @
25K. Dealer flushed the system to
find "peanut butter" like substance.
Dealer says this is "bars leaks" (never
heard of it). Dealer says this was
added and is reason for thermostat
failure. The car has been serviced by 3
volvo dealers only! All deny adding
this. It could impact the radiator, new
thermostat, and my warranty. Volvo of
North America will do nothing! From my
experience with the manufacturer,
dealer, and car it's clear that I
bought a Vord. Stay away from this
vehicle, it will only disappoint you.
