The engine is the heart of the vehicle. A car can’t drive without a properly working engine.
Common symptoms of engine failures include:
- Engine Control Module (ECM) warning lights on the dash
- Check engine lights
- No start, excessive cranking
- Lack of acceleration
- Loss of power
- Stalling (most often when attempting to shift gear)
The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car.
Common symptoms of transmission failures include:
- Whining and clunking
- Burning smell
- Lack of response, hesitation,
- Lunging, or jerking
- Noisy in neutral
- Leaking fluid
- Premature clutch replacements
Power Steering Failure
The steering system of a vehicle is one of its key components. It is designed to reduce the effort required to turn the steering wheel of a vehicle with the help of vacuum, pumps, and hydraulics.
Common symptoms of power steering failure include:
- Increased effort required to turn the steering wheel, especially at slow speeds
- Odd “whining” or “squealing” sounds coming from the wheels when turning
- Steering wheel shakes or feels “loose”
- Leaking power steering fluid
Engine Cooling System Failure
A car’s engine cooling system is responsible for keeping the engine cool while it works to prevent overheating. The system does so by sending a liquid coolant through hoses and passages in the engine. As the coolant flows through these hoses and passages, it picks up and removes heat from the engine. The water pump has the job of keeping the coolant moving through the system, and the radiator re-cools the liquid so it can again be circulated through the passages in the motor.
Common symptoms of engine cooling system failure include:
- Overheating, especially on city roads or “stop-and-go” traffic
- Metallic smell coming from the engine compartment
- Coolant leaks
- Steam or smoke emanating from the engine compartment
Brake Fade or Failure
The brake system is one of the most important systems in a vehicle and is vital in preventing crashes. Most vehicles use either disk brakes, drum brakes, or hydraulic brakes. Brake failure is usually caused by faded brake pads or a malfunctioning brake booster.
Common symptoms of brake fade or failure include:
- Brake light on
- Wobbling or scraping when braking
- Squealing when braking
- Leaking fluid
- Soft “spongy” brake pedal
- Burning smell when braking
- Increased stopping distance

Notable Volvo Recalls
Seat Belts May Not Restrain Occupant (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 20V378000)
- In June 2020, Volvo recalled over 300,000 vehicles with defective seat belts.
- According to Volvo, The flexible steel cable that connects the seatbelt to the front outboard seating positions may fatigue over time, causing the seatbelt to not secure the occupant in the event of a crash. An unsecured occupant has an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Doors May Unexpectedly Open (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 19V849000)
- In November 2019, Volvo recalled 145,000 vehicles with defective door latches.
- According to Volvo, a component within the door latches may break, making the doors difficult to latch and/or leading the driver or a passenger to believe a door is securely closed when, in fact, it is not. A door that is not securely latched could open while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury to occupants.
At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Volvo.
The Volvo Group is a Swedish multinational manufacturing company headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden. Volvo has manufacturing plants in Sweden, Belgium, China, and The U.S. In addition to consumer cars and SUVs, Volvo’s is involved in the production, distribution, and sale of semi trucks, buses, construction equipment, and marine systems.
Volvo is one of the most ambitious car manufacturers, with its focus centering on the safety of its vehicles. Their stated intention is to totally eliminate death and serious injuries caused by their vehicles by 2020. They have also announced plans for 50% of their sales to be for fully-electric vehicles by 2025.
Volvos typically rank around the middle of the pack in terms of reliability. While it is not the worst car in the world, it is definitely not the most reliable either. Consumers have consistently complained of problems with the cars cooling systems, transmission, electronics, and fuel leaks. A third of Volvo XC owners have reported having to take their car in for repairs within the first year of ownership, with the average for cars of 0-3 years being 25%.
I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?
Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Volvo often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Volvo’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
