Car reluctant to start after a 10 minute stop when 4 gallons of gas were left in the tank, then got "engine running slowly" warning light. Dealer could find nothing wrong. Dealer suggested that there is a design flaw in this Volvo year/model in which spirited rural driving when fuel tank has as much as 1/4 tank left - involving sharp turns -- introduces air into the fuel line, which has to work itself through the engine before it will run properly. I am doubtful. Since the car was in for 40000 mile service, I insisted that they look into the low-gas-tank engine not starting problem more thoroughly. Accordingly, they ran another diagnostic which showed that it was not a design flaw, as it had been suggested to me, but a sensor problem, and they needed to replace the engine speed sensor and 2 crankshaft position sensors. driver side front foot panel loose. Found mounting tabs on part broken and clips missing. Replaced sill molding and broken clips.

Totally in shock that at just under 42k, needed rear rotors and pads? It seems rear pads are much thinner and wear faster as they are part of straight line braking, and are always active. Fortunately, I won a $500.00. volvo voucher which I applied. I guess this is the price of safety. I was given option to NOT replace rear rotors, but, in for a penny in for a pound. Seems rear pads are always being used. Rears were at 2mm, fronts at 10mm. Seems volvo should have used a thicker rear pad.
