Component Failure Table

How to take your summer vacation...instead of a $3000 repair bill!

The last thing we want to see is a customer’s Volvo towed into our shop due to a major component failure. These repair jobs are expensive, time consuming and inefficient as far as our shop flow is concerned not to mention budget busting as far as you are concerned. Almost all major component failures could have been avoided with some proactive parts replacement. These parts are relatively inexpensive when compared to component replacements. As a result, we have compiled the following list of parts we monitor that are known causes of expensive component failures.
