i just bought a new 2006 v70 a few days ago and i am having problems
already. when i test drove the car at the dealer before i bought it,
there was a warning on the dash that said "passenger side airbag off.
urgent service needed." (or something close to that message). the
dealer "fixed" it before i bought the car and when it was delivered,
this message was gone.
i said to the salesman who delivered the car "ok, you have my money
now. what do i need to know about the car that you haven't told me?" he
responded that he was pretty sure that i wouldn't get the message back
again, but "volvo is going to recall that (passenger) seat in about 5
or 6 months." !!!!!!! don't you think that i should have been told
this before i bought the car?

well, guess what? after driving it for about 10 miles a couple of days
later, the message came back on.
has anyone else had this problem? i am pissed.

thanks,
jim

Um.... so take it back and either get them to fix it properly or get
your money back. If they know about the recall they should have told
you before purchasing. And again, if they knew about the recall they
must have a temporary fix until seat replacement. If not there will be
loads of V70 owners complaining.

Most states have a lemon law and if the same problem is fixed three
times you can get your money back or something to that effect.

Thanks for the warning. I bought an 06 v70 2.5T just a few days ago.
So far, all is normal re air bag warnings. But does this recall
business mean the passenger side *might* not work? I'm thinking about
going back for something else. I feel a tad too much engine vibration
at idle for this expensive of a car. When I pointed it out to the
salesman (we're both sitting in the car idling), he said it was cold.
When I showed him that the temp gauge was straight up, he said, "Oh,
you can't go by that." Then he said, the engine was new so a little
vibration was normal. I don't know ....

Good luck to both of us,
Dennis
