#6 - Air Conditioner problem of the 1998 Volvo S70
The vehicle is a 1998 Volvo S70. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is YV1LS5540W_. I purchased a 1998 S70 Volvo from suburban Volvo in troy michigan. I took the car in for repairs for the air conditioning before the warranty expired. I was told to return if the a/c leaked. I was looking for a physical leak, which I later found out there is no physical indiciation of a problem. I returned the car on two more occassions to the dealership for the same problem. After the warranty expired, I was told that the a/c had a leak and I had to pay $1,400 to have repaired. I explained to the suburban dealer that I felt I should not have to pay for the repairs because the car was sold to me with a leak. To further add to the story, I had taken the car in to be repaired for a recall on the lights. I am not sure if the recall was for the headlights or tailights. While in the shop, I inquired about the headlight wipers not working. I was told I needed to purchase a headlight motor at a cost of about 4 or 5 hundred dollars because the car had been in an accident. I was told no it had not been in an accident. I found out later (after the tire rod broke while being driven) that the tire rod had been damaged in an accident. I had repaired at a cost of 800. 00 which I paid. Is there any type of relief for me since the car had been in an accident prior to me purchasing the vehicle? the a/c is not working, the check engine light constantly comes on, the driver side window doesnt work at all, the headlight wipers don't work at all. The a/c and headlight wipers have never worked properly since I purchased in February 2001. I have written the owner of the dealership and Volvo of north America (vna). The dealership never responded. Volvo of north America did respond and told me there was nothing they could do. Vna shared I had to work it out with the dealership. Have been reading that the check engine is an ongoing problem with some Volvos. The electrical system is presenting problems also. Do I have any recourse after owning the car since 2001?. This issue happened on May. 1, 2001.
