I OWN A 2006 VOLVO XC90 AND I AM CONCERNED THAT THE REAR WHEEL BEARING MAY BE A MANUFACTURERS DEFECT. I RECENTLY TOOK MY VEHICLE INTO A VOLVO DEALER (JULY 2008 WHILE STILL COVERED UNDER WARRANTY) AS I FELT THAT IT WASN'T RUNNING PROPERLY AND IT WAS MAKING WEIRD NOISES THEY COULD NOT FIND THE PROBLEM (I MADE THE DEALERSHIP PROVIDE ME WITH A CAR FAX REPORT AS I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE AS A DEMO). JUST LAST WEEK, 4,000 MILES AFTER THE WARRANTY EXPIRED THE NOISES GOT WORSE AND I DISCOVERED BOTH REAR WHEEL BEARINGS WERE BAD ALONG WITH BOTH REAR TIE RODS. I CONTACTED CORP. VOLVO AND THEY AGREED TO COVER A LITTLE OVER 50% OF THE ENTIRE REPAIRS. I AM CONCERNED BECAUSE WHILE I WAS RESEARCHING OVER THE INTERNET I DISCOVERED THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL PEOPLE WITH THE SAME CAR THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM. I EVEN RECEIVED CONFIRMATION FROM THE DEALERSHIP THAT MY SPECIFIC VEHICLE IS KNOWN FOR THIS PROBLEM. I FOUND ON YOUR WEBSITE THAT THE TIE ROD ASSEMBLY WAS A RECALL FOR MY VEHICLE (06V-155). IF VOLVO REPLACED THIS PART AS RECALL ON MY VEHICLE WHY WOULD THEY GO BAD AGAIN IN SUCH A SHORT TIME FRAME? WOULD A DEFECTIVE TIE ROD CAUSE WEAR AND TEAR ON THE WHEEL BEARINGS? I AM CONCERNED THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO OTHER CONSUMERS OR EVEN WORSE THIS DEFECT MAY CAUSE AN ACCIDENT? I DID NOT FEEL THAT I SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY OF THE REPAIRS AND I HOPE THAT OTHER CONSUMERS IN MY POSITION WOULD NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS AS IT DOES APPEAR TO BE A KNOWN AND COMMON PROBLEM. PLEASE HELP RESEARCH THIS PROBLEM.
