2000 Volvo S80 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 59750 miles
I have my car at the dealer for winter tire swapover and an oil change and I just got a call telling me that one of the front bushings is worn and that I should replace all 4. This to the tune of over 700.00.
I know nothing about cars and usually trust the dealer but had a bad experience recently and am now a bit uneasy when it comes to repairs.
First of all, how would they even know this? I didn't think that this would be visible by merely removing a tire.
Second, if 1 is worn and in need of replacement, is it absolutely necessary to replace all 4 at this time?
Thanks so much for your advice. Enjoy your day
