2004 Volvo S60 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 88400 miles
I've begun to have problems (6 times since early March of this year) w/ my car not starting whatsoever-battery is running fine but there is no click sound and no engine attempt to turnover - no sound at all. My car has been towed 6 times to 2 different VOlvo Dealers and another independent repair shop. Every time the car has started for the shops/dealer and I've been told they cannot identify the issue if it does not occur w/ them. As a result it is never repaired. THe starter they state is not a problem identified nor w/ the computer when they check it out w/ their computer. I'm ready at this point to trade it in for a Subaru as I did some research and see that it is not uncommon w/ Volvo's since Ford has been making them but not so w/ the older Volvo's. I know Ford is known for electrical issues. It is distressing that none of the mechanics can identify the repeat problem if it hasn't occurred w/ them and therefore cannot correct it. Otherwise the car has run great but am about to swear off Volvo's. Are Subaru's more reliable as they are safe?
have the same problem?
