problem #4

Apr 012008

S80 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 118,000 miles
The contact owns a 1999 Volvo S80. When the contact attempted to lower the passenger side window, it suddenly stopped functioning. She pushed the button to raise the window and the glass fell off track, which resulted in the window resting at a slight right angle. The current and failure mileages were 118,000.

problem #3

S80 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
The front, passenger window actuator "broke" approximately 1 month ago. I just found out that the front, driver side actuator is now broken. Neither of these windows received excessive use or abuse. It is not acceptable for them to just "break" with normal usage.
