#34 of 112 keyless remote programming?
Dec 28, 2005 (9:37 pm)
A few weeks ago, I lost one of my 2003 Volvo XC70's remote fobs. I understand that it will cost me about $165 to replace it at my dealership (and I must as my lease is up soon). I can buy a used one on ebay for under $25 but must get it programmed. Is this something I can do myself? If not, do you have any idea what my dealership might charge to do this? Will they even do it with one that did not come with the car?
All help will be GREATLY appreciated!
#36 of 112 strange noise
Jan 11, 2006 (7:52 am)
I have, what sounds like, a shock or engine mount on a 99 XC70 that sounds like to pieces of metal hitting together. The mechanics have tried twice to isolate the noise to no avail. Has anyone had a noise like this? It is particularly bad when going slowly around left turns and is much more pronounced when going slower in general.

#41 of 112 is this for real?

The Volvo P&S and there are only 40 posts. Volvo - not known for it's reliability or it's customer relations. Don't get me wrong, the Volvo XC70 has many of the features I'm looking for but I have always had strong reservations based on high incidents of problems in the past. I was hoping to see whether those problems have decreased or not. But with only 40 posts I'm affraid my conclusion is that nobody is buying them any more, therefore a lower reporting of problems (ie - fewer owners, fewer problems)
Anyone care to comment.

#43 of 112 "Sticky" Fuel Guage
Jan 30, 2006 (12:28 pm)
Minor bummer. Filled up the tank on my wife's new V70 for the first time last night. Low fuel light had been on for maybe ten miles and I got 17 gal. into the tank. That agreed with the manual (1.8 gal. remain when light comes on). I was happy. Then I start it up and the guage only goes up to about one third tank and stops. Checked it a couple more times last night, bounced the bumper, rocked it side to side, and still no joy. Has anyone had this happen, or have some theories? I haven't talked to my wife yet since this morning, so it may have cured itself. If it has I think we won't let the tank get so low again.
