8/27/2003 - YORBA LINDA, CA
1) DRIVER'S SEAT SHIFTS REARWARD ON ACCELERATION AND SHIFTS FORWARD ON BRAKING. DEALER HAS ATTEMPTED TO FIX THIS PROBLEM 3 OR MORE TIMES, BUT IT RE-PPEARS SHORTLY AFTER REPAIR. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. 2) VEHICLE DIFFICULT TO SHIFT GEARS (MANUAL TRANSMISSION). GEAR CHANGES ARE VERY 'JERKY', THE VEHICLE CANNOT BE SHIFTED SMOOTHLY. VOLVO RECOMMENDS LETTING THE CLUTCH SLIP MORE, BUT THIS ONLY MASKS THE PROBLEM. 3) VOLVO ACKNOWLEDGES AN ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE, BUT REFUSES TO FIX IT. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE.

TIRES: SIDEWALL

8/26/2003 - BLOOMFIELD, NJ
I HAVE A 2002 VOLVO S60 AWD WITH PIRELLI P6 TIRES. BACK IN JANUARY I HAD A BLOWOUT AFTER HITTING A BUMP IN THE ROAD. NOW THE 3 REMAINING TIRES HAVE DEVELOPED LARGE BUBBLES IN THE SIDEWALLS. ALL 4 OF MY RIMS ARE BENT. I HAVE COMPLAINED TO VOLVO AND PIRELLI TIRE. THEY BLAME THE ROAD CONDITIONS IN THE NORTHEAST. THEY OFFERED NO ASSISTANCE. I HAVE FOUND OTHER PEOPLE WITH THE SAME COMPLAINT. OVER THE WEEKEND ANOTHER TIRE WENT FLAT AS ONE OF THE BUBBLES RUPTURED. AS THE CAR IS NOT DRIVABLE, IT SITS IN MY DRIVEWAY AS I CAN'T GET ANYWHERE WITH VOLVO.
