#43 of 44 Recurring S80 electrical problems
Feb 24, 2003 (6:19 am)
1999 S80 T6 with 65,000 miles on it. I have had a recurrign problem where I intermittently lose my dashboard instrumentation and all steering column functions( blinkers, washer fluid etc.) It has been fixed 3 times by the dealer saying it's a problem with the wiring through the climate control system. Bottom line it has cost my well over $2,000 and stil not fixed. What kind of recourse do I have with the dealer or Volvo?

I *may* get a solid chance to land the above model, with 54K miles for a $15K price tag. I understand this car books at around low-20s retail (per NADA) but I don't have to wonder who I could possibly get it from because it's a brother of a good friend. Anyway, if I do get a chance to get it, my enthusiasm has been tempered by the trans. and electrical problems I've seen on this board. I have a '98 Civic now and while it ain't sexy, it's basically been a gas-n-oil car with a brake and muffler job tossed in. What would I be in for with a Volvo maintenance-wise? Sounds like a lot of headaches and $$$
