This is great!

I'm really happy/suprised to see that a Volvo thread is on this awesome forum! Very cool .

I'm new here, my name is Tyler, and I have a 2004 Volvo S40 1.9T with 105k miles. Yes, a 105k miles :).

Here's a day of detailing with my baby :) .







And here's a group one.


Well I was just so happy to see this part of the forum is here! I feel even more at home now.

Thanks for viewing,
Tyler

Re: This is great!

Thanks, I just had a bit of a bad thing happen to it 2 days ago. Some jerk backed into the mirror, front drivers door, and fender.

The mirror alone cost $500 to replace. I'm not looking forward to hearing about the rest. :( .

These are sweet cars! Our Delaership recently picked up the Volvo line and I am highly impressed!

That is nothing! We have had 3 come in with over 300,000 miles and one particular 850 Wagon with 414,000 miles on it.

1998, 1999, and 2001. Volvo 850 wagons and V70 wagon < Those are the high-mileage ones.

We have a couple S40 models like yours with over 100,000 that come in.

Re: This is great!

The XC90 is not as reliable! The engine is, but they have wheel bearing issues and tire wear issues.

I was unaware of this. Well are you seeing these issue more on older or newer models? In other words, are the problems being corrected?

Re: This is great!

I am seeing this issue on all XC90 models. Seems like every one of them have alignment issues right from the factory.
